I am very excited to get to share this time with you all to talk to you about my kindness challenge. I personally decided that coming here was definitely the right choice. At one time I sat in the very same place you’re sitting. I went to the same classes that you are. I went to the same school. You all are very blessed to have such a nice school as you do. The reason I’m saying this is that I know what such good people you are surrounded by. Those people are mainly the ones who inspired me to do this. I’ve always wanted to do this project I just didn’t know when or where. By growing up around the people I did and going to Fleming neon it taught me a lot. Of course I came to school and learned the math, science, reading, English, all of those, but I also learned respect, kindness and encouragement. Being respectful and kind to others is just as important, kindness can be expressed in many ways. My goal during this project is to prove that no matter how old you are, no matter where you are from, no matter how much money you have, all of those things, it’s important to be kind to others around you. Sometimes the decisions you make affect others. Everyone at some point in their life go through hard times and struggles. During that time it wouldn’t hurt to be encouraging to them or to focus on their problems.
