What are three things that you are most proud of?
This was a question posed last week to the students at the Elizabeth Grady School. There was no need for a verbal response, just simply an opportunity for students to reflect on three of their many accomplishments achieved in their lives up until this moment.
An Open Note to the Students at Elizabeth Grady School
The massage therapy and esthetics students at the Elizabeth Grady School are more than just students. You may be a mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son, and/or friend. You may be one of the many students who are caretakers, often putting the needs of others before your own.
You have overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges during your life and continue to face new challenges every day. Perhaps you are one of the many students challenged with unexpected health problems.
You may be a student who holds down a job, or two, while at the same time attending school. To get to class, you may have to take a train, one or more busses, or walk distances.
You work hard every day to overcome these obstacles so that you can achieve your dreams.
You are determined, tenacious, and posses a big heart. Sometimes when you have such a big heart it is easy to feel exposed and be hurt. But somehow you move past these moments. You continue to give so that you can help others feel better about themselves and their circumstances.
Our message to you and all of the students at the Elizabeth Grady School is that we see all that you do every day and recognize how amazing you are. We believe in you. We know you have the spirit to keep going against all odds. We are proud of you and are certain that you will continue to add to your list of accomplishments that you are most proud of.
With Kindness and Respect,
The Faculty and Staff at the Elizabeth Grady School
