People are like materials, kindness is the glue keeping us together. Kindness can come in all shapes and sizes, a present, a sentence, a small hand gesture, but the most powerful to me is a simple smile. Saying or doing something kind can encourage, determine and brighten people’s outlook on things. Do things not for rewards but to try and brighten a day. Enjoy being kind as it can make the person receiving the gesture enjoy it more. Not all heroes wear capes, some are just kind.

My act of kindness was baking a cake for my grandad and grandma, who were feeling lonely during lockdown; I also baked a chocolate cake for my cousin’s birthday, as he could not have a big celebration. I love helping other people and being kind as it gives me a warm feeling inside that makes me happy.
