A student, who prefers to remain anonymous, took it upon himself to make sure, not a single one went without feeling wanted and loved on Valentine’s day. In a truly creative and selfless manner, this student created colorful origami hearts for each and every one of them.
The previous day, he set about sticking each of the beautifully crafted, colored hearts on the lockers and included a personalized , handwritten message on them.
As a staff member described, “these are individually hand written origami hearts that this person started working on back in September. This person has been secretly storing them in their closet at home to surprise everyone today.” Each valentine bore a simple message – “you are loved”.
