We live in a world where people constantly judge others. Without a shoulder to lean on, the world can seem like a pretty mean place. How can friendship and kindness bring seemingly different people together, and add value to their lives through doing so?

Ella Musher-Eizenman, sophomore at Ottawa Hills High school, is an avid volunteer at the Toledo Friendship Circle. She loves spending time with family and friends, taking pictures, and traveling. Ella hopes to one day work in the field of special education.
