I pledge to spread inclusion by making sure to always be kind to all those around me. I pledge to spread inclusion by trying to share a smile with everyone at my school. I pledge to spread inclusion by doing my best to help make my school feel like a warm and welcoming environment.

I pledge to be more inclusive by continuing to expand my knowledge on disabilities. As a future educator, I'd like to learn how to foster an inclusive classroom environment where everyone is included. All children deserve the same opportunities and the chance to reach their full potential.

I pledge to spread inclusion by spreading kindness throughout my daily life and future as a teacher. Helping and respecting others is one of the most important things within a community. As Jesse Jackson says, "Never look down on anybody unless you are helping them up". I want my future students to feel a sense of community that is made from respect, kindness, equality, and love for one another and their self.

I pledge to spread inclusion by inviting people in and showing them kindness, to make them feel included. I think it's important to show them you care and allowing them to be with you. We all deserve the same attention and being able to do fun stuff with others.

I pledge to spread inclusion by cherishing the beauty of human differences. We all have different ideas, cultures, identities, abilities, challenges, and values. Inclusivity is respecting, cherishing, and welcoming all human beings with no exceptions. Inclusion does away with the roots of exclusion... ego, fear, and prejudice.

When I was in first grade, Loretta Claiborne came to visit my class. She showed us her gold medals from Special Olympics victories in long-distance running.

I have been a Special Olympics athlete since 2012. Besides being an athlete, I am also a Special Olympics US Youth Ambassador and a Montana Special Olympics State Youth Activation Committee member.

I have always been very protective and concerned about my younger sister, Sagarika, who was born with an intellectual disability. I feel extremely blessed to have a sister like her. She is a gift to our family.
