As a teacher, I witness student who has low Self esteem and in turn suffer from depression, I have advocated the need to encourage people to have a positive attitude and a positive look at life no matter what… Reasons why most student fail is not that they don’t know, it just that they are afraid to ask for help, shy to discuss their limitations and too weak to face their fears

Some people are scared to ask for help, I’ve been in situations where I was lost and I was so shy to reach out for help… I believe it’s a good reminder not just for students but for us humans… We should be there for each other

In my 3rd grade, I had difficulties understanding a core Part of my course, I nearly gave up, until a group of friends reach out to help, at first, my pride won’t let me, but on a second thought, I gave in to pressure and the results was amazing, being open is a very good attribute of success… Thank you so much Sophia
