Olivia Vella presented her end-of-year poem in front of her class . This is a six-minute poem that her fellow students stunned.
“Even though you spent hours trying to look pretty, you’ll never be as good as those other girls at school. You look at other girls wishing you were them, but other girls are looking at you wishing they were you.
You are loved. You are precious. You are beautiful. You are talented. You are capable. You are deserving of respect. And most of all, you are good enough.” – Olivia Vella
Brett Cornelius – seventh-grade writing teaching at Queen Creek Middle School said: “I am witnessing the lives of men, women, and other children Olivia’s age being impacted all around the world, and all because she woke up one morning and said, “I can do this.” She came to school, anxiety and all, and chose to put her heart and soul on the line for all 180 of my students.
“We all must learn to love ourselves the way we were made. Trying to change to please others won’t make us happy.” – Mom, Molly Vella said.
“Filled with raw passion, fear, vulnerability and immense courage, has caused a worldwide rippling effect, and I’m so proud of her. She’s steering this ship of self-love, and I’m proud to call her may captain and hero.” Cornelius added.
Olivia Vella is so brave to deliver the speech. And this could help children all over the world to realize how blessed, wonderful, and loved they were.
