This week’s blog was written by 7yr old BulliesOut Mini Ambassador, William.
My friends make me happy every day. They make me laugh. They make me smile and they look after me when I don’t feel well.
My friends are kind. My best friend is called Luke and he is kind, and funny too. When I am feeling sad, spending time with him cheers me up.
Sometimes my friends and I don’t get on, but we always sort it out by the end of the day. Sometimes I agree with them and then other times they agree with me. But they are still always my friends.
When I think about what makes me a good friend, I think about how it’s important to always respect peoples differences. We are all different and if we make fun of someone because of that difference it could make them feel sad. I think friendship is about making my friends feel happy not sad. Or about cheering them up or making them laugh. That’s why I always try to make them laugh if they are sad or I tell someone if they hurt themselves or if someone is mean to them.
I wanted to become a BulliesOut Mini Ambassador because I want to help people to be kind to other people. I want to help people who have been bullied in my school and help cheer them up and be their friend.
I also wanted to be a Mini Ambassador because I want to be able to look after my little brother and make sure no one ever bullies him. As a BulliesOut Mini Ambassador I can help him if he needs me.
I hope some of you read this and want to become Mini Ambassadors too.

Today marks National Friendship Day.
It is a day that allows us to celebrate our friendships and tell those we love how important they are to us. Sometimes hearing it from the mouths of children really highlights how important the fundamental pillars of friendship are. Kindness, compassion, and respect. Those pillars are the same whether we are 7 years old or whether we are 70 years old. If we are lucky enough to have friendships that display those pillars then we shouldn’t take them for granted. Let’s tell our friends today how important they are to us.
