Alondra, an 11th grade high school student in California, uses GiveThx almost every day in her AP English class. Sending and receiving gratitude notes at the beginning of class motivates her to speak up and share her thoughts and feelings.
"I look forward to those four or five minutes when we start class with GiveThx," she says. "I get to focus on the positive, and it feels like everything I say and share matters."
Over the school year, Alondra noticed feeling happier and more connected to her peers. She attributes this to GiveThx.
"GiveThx makes me feel seen and appreciated by my peers. I look forward to using it and getting a chance to share my gratitude."
