For Bella, a fourth grade student at Bryant Elementary School, the excitement of leading her peers inspired her to run for president of her class. Her fellow YMCA Child Care peers helped her create campaign posters and rallied behind her in support.
"You guys are like family to us and have really brought out the 'awesome' in my child," says Char, Bella's mother.
Win or lose, Bella enjoyed the challenge of trying something out of her comfort zone. Running for president is just one way that Bella speaks so she can be heard, and YMCA Child Care kids know how to support each other in being leaders. Way to go Bella!
