“I feel good inside when I do these deeds and I think other people should be kind, too,” Brianna says. “I feel like if more people did this, we could communicate better.”

Margie Rohrbach, media specialist: Brianna Seepersad is a new sophomore here and she is a model student. She is in my Women of Tomorrow and Book Club and she is studious, extremely responsible and helpful. She has volunteered to help with WOT and Book Club, so she will now be historian of Book Club and will work on the Bulletin Board. She is here every morning working and is always respectful, polite and friendly.

Rajdaye Seepersad, mother: You can teach your kids to be kind, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to do it. Most kids practice what you preach at home, but when they are alone, they are a completely different person. Some kids are just born with a kind heart. This is like instinct for them. Brianna has always been this way – kind, giving and loving. She’s always willing to give a helping hand to anyone in need.

There was a time I remember when she was in elementary school. The teacher would always call on her to help in class because they know she is always willing to go that extra mile in assisting. Her classmates never appreciated her kindness and called her names like a ‘goody two shoes’ or a ‘teacher’s pet.’ That never kept her back from being that wonderful person to everyone. She has always been the first one to help anyone in need.

Brianna has always been a shy person and doesn’t have many friends. I think she goes out of her way to be extra caring to people in hopes to come out of her shell and be a good friend. It’s nice to know others beside myself have recognized how special she is. She brings joy to everyone.

She is always doing good deeds. Brianna volunteers at the library and at her middle school’s PTSA. She is always willing to stay back to give that extra help when needed. If you don’t ask her for help, she will ask you if you need help. We believe in karma; what goes around comes around. If you send out good energy and treat people with love, then this will also come back to you. This is an old saying in our culture to do good to others and this is what she does.

Brianna Seepersad: I don’t really do anything extra in hopes of being noticed or praised. This is something I do on a normal basis. I sometimes help other students with their work when they’re stuck or I might open the door for someone else to walk in first.

I think I have always been kind to others. I just like to be kind to others; it makes me feel good about myself. I know that there might be someone who might be having a bad day and they are feeling bad about themselves. If I do something, even something small, it can make their day. Something small could be helping someone feel better, helping others with their work, etc.

I feel good inside when I do these deeds. I have heard from people that they admire that I am always willing to lend a helping hand to them. I often try to go out of my way to make sure they understand or get something. I do believe that these deeds have impacts. I have also been told that when I do something like make sure they are OK, it helps their day go a little better.

I would say I exhibit these traits often. I don’t really keep a track of everything I do. I automatically do it without even thinking. This is because I think it’s an essential part of life.
