Sparking Joy in Someone’s Day
In this digital age where so much of the online discourse we read is destructive, mean, and that content is iterated with alarming ease, it is incumbent upon all of us to nurture simple acts of kindness and recognize Upstanders who quietly spark joy in someone’s day. Some of these Upstanders are the youngest members of our communities and with Valentine’s Day approaching, a day when we think and act with love, we want to share some of the heart-warming stories from the inspiring students at No Bully’s partner schools!
Please meet our first wonderful Student Upstander, Rosgaly, who will receive a t-shirt from The Kind Coalition in recognition of her commitment to her school community and to being kind.
How Rosgaly Chooses Kindness
Rosgaly is inclusive and supportive of all her 4th Grade classmates. In school, she helps other students both academically and emotionally. She tutors and is always kind and respectful in her delivery and more importantly her praise, providing continuous support for her peers’ success! Her teacher says you can often find her de-escalating an argument or derailing bullying behavior. During recess, she has been seen trying to calm an argument and will engage participants to talk it out… other students have come to look up to her. She is never afraid or intimated by bullying and always stands up for what is right.
Thank you, Rosgaly, for being fearless and kind, and moving us with your generosity of spirit and desire to make peace among friends!
Please look forward to more student stories throughout the week and consider making a donation to support the good work No Bully does with students like Rosgaly.
