A little positivity goes a long way.
So, along with a team of other young people, I took part in a Good Gestures Day.
It involved us offering members of the public high-fives, hugs, handshakes and fist bumps – all just to brighten their moods.
Groups in a number of other cities are also held their own Good Gestures Days to make this a national event.
The original day, that’s led to this bigger campaign, was held in Birmingham last November.
I wasn’t able to attend, but Stephen Sutton, who inspired the project, asked me to get involved this time.
I’m currently studying at university in Manchester, but Stephen’s been a close friend of mine since secondary school.
Despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer in 2012, he didn’t let it stop him from having a laugh.
He was a gifted individual and always chose to live life to the fullest.
It’s an honour for us to be part of this campaign and to spread Stephen’s message to the streets of Manchester.
