Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Our English Teacher

Mrs Marani our English teacher last month was very kind and helpful to us. After going through a very traumatising experience I could not concentrate in my studies I always thought that that was the end of me. All the time I kept to myself and was not free to talk to anybody as I feared that they would laugh at me but after talking to Mrs Marani I came to realise that she was a good and very supportive all the time.
