When our world came to a grinding halt in March due to COVID-19, teens suddenly had a lot of free time on their hands. No school, no sports, no social gatherings.

Free time could mean more time for teens to make bad decisions — but at Positively Elkhart County, we know that’s not the case. Instead, the teenagers in our community are making positive choices.

Jaycee is one of those teenagers making positive choices. She has used her free time to lift the spirits of her neighbors by delivering handwritten notes and drawings.

“You are absolutely beautiful inside and out,” Jaycee wrote in one of her letters. “Another tip: 99.9% of the time, no one cares how you look. It is all in your had. Also, your inner beauty is what really shows. Everyone’s personality, opinions, and thoughts are different. You wouldn’t be you without your unique traits. Finally, I have one last point. You should never depend on others to make you happy.”
