This afternoon a fruitful conversation took place in our lounge during our snack time and all the girls were engaging with great interest.
What is the definition of a role model? Someone that you look up to.
We all have role models.
What are their qualities?
They have high moral values and they are honest.
They project confidence.
Role models demonstrate their commitment to a desired goal and are willing to invest the necessary time and effort to achieve success.
They don’t give up easily and they persevere when confronted by obstacles. Their passion to succeed inspires youngsters to follow through and reach the goals they set for themselves.
In order for role models to be influential, they must show respect for others.
Role models inspire others with an upbeat, optimistic outlook on life.
In J.B. Terray Boarding House, everyone’s role model or models come from family members. Grand-parents and parents who managed to succeed in life with their perseverance and positive energy. Strong passionate people who are kind and compassionate. We are all lucky and grateful to have these people in our lives. We want to learn from them and set the example to others as they did.
And you know…. you might be this role model. It’s all about good intentions and kind actions.
