ALWAYS BE YOURSELF - confidence/encouragement
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF is an encouraging song written by a grade 3/4 split class at Topham Elementary School in Langley, BC. The students wanted to write a song about struggles in school with confidence, bullying, kindness and/or friendship. After some discussion, and narrowing the plans down to a storied song about a boy and a girl who are each feeling lonely and misunderstood, but who find each other and make friends, the song was born. A slightly sad feeling pair of verses made us all feel empathetic and kind towards our chosen characters, and a feel-good encouraging chorus topped the song off with a fun energy.
Themes: loneliness, shyness, social challenges, encouragement, confidence, kindness
