I believe that one person can make a difference. One person that’s it can totally change the life of thousands of people. I believe that person can inspire and make peoples hopes and dreams come true. A microscopic person on this big old world can change lives for the good.

I believe that one person can make a difference. I was in the seventh grade going trotting down to my math class and there was this boy sitting in the back slumped over, he always got picked on because he was different. I sat down by him and pulled up a chair, then made a light conversation about how he was and what was knew. I would smile and wave if we passed by each other in the hall. He always liked talking to me and I liked talking to him too. Then I found out that he transferred to a different school. I missed seeing him there in his chair in the back by mine.

Then a week later my sisters told me a story about how they talked to a guy who knew me when they were in the salon, and it was him the guy who I sat by in math after they told me what he looked like. They told me that he said I was the nicest girl and how I had changed his life and I was the only person who actually talked to him. I hid my tears and held them back I never knew I could do this much for a person by simply talking to them. I had no idea that I was capable for changing a life like the way I did. I thought just being nice wouldn’t do that for a person. I always looked at him from the inside out and that’s why I did not judge him for what he looked like.

I believe that one person can change a life and make a difference by not judging or hurting others. It takes a little bit of effort but makes a big impact. I think about the people that sit alone and don’t think they have a chance and I want to be that shoulder they can cry on and I always wanted to be the person to make a difference in someone’s life. You don’t ever know how much you can make a difference until you do. I believe everyone can take a chance to be kind a loving to everyone. You will get the best gift back the feeling of appreciation and the touching of your heart that makes you melt because you know you have made a difference. That is the best feeling of all.

I believe that one person can make a difference even when you or they feel they can’t. Helping others to make their life better is going to be the most honorable thing you can do. It gives you self accomplishment and makes you feel unexpectedly good inside and out.

I believe to stand out and make a difference
