The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - UPFRONT -

Happy 10th birth­day, Qweekend, from a hoarder of QW ar­ti­cles. I also keep the Or­di­nary Peo­ple col­umns in a scrap­book at the high school where I work, pro­vid­ing the stu­dents with the op­por­tu­nity to read these “out of the box” sto­ries. These sto­ries all seem to have a sim­i­lar theme of re­silience, hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion. These and the idea of self-worth are things we can’t learn, but some­thing we find within our­selves when ad­ver­sity calls. I work with and en­cour­age these young adults to be the best ver­sion of them­selves and not to “fol­low the pack”, even when this seems to be the eas­ier path to take. I find the best way to get this mes­sage across is to show, not tell.

Dee Hud­son, Park Ridge
