My action was cheering up a younger student who looked like she was having a rough or sad day. I made her laugh by telling her jokes and I got her to smile. Making someone laugh or smile just once isn’t going to make a lasting social but it can make her temporarily feel better. I could make my action a long term social change by becoming friends with this girl and helping her out when she feels down on herself. I could also make my action better by introducing her to some girls in her grade so she has people around her when she’s in class.
Being involved in a social action project made me feel like I belong in this school because I feel like i’m being helpful compared to how I used to feel. I used to feel like I was a burden to everyone but doing this project opened my eyes and made me feel like I wasn’t.
