Hazel Hayes has worked on a lot of interesting projects on her YouTube channel. Sketches, short films and an excellent monthly vlog are just a few of the video styles she has dabbled in; but Hazel‘s first foray into spoken word poetry has surprised and delighted a lot of people.
“Happy”, written by Hazel, is a story about finding happiness; particularly, in the face of all the prevailing negative feelings we deal with. With a video animated by her friends Cayleigh Maloye and Chloe Dungate, and a dedication to “all the people who have helped me find my Happy”, the poem is a heartwarming tribute to Hazel’s friends and all the experiences that have helped her.

Here’s hoping we’ll see a lot more inspiring spoken word from Hazel in the future!
