Prevailing Against Peer Pressure

I want to brag about Gwen (my niece) today.

Last week, two girls tried to persuade Gwen to allow them to copy her school work.  Gwen was outnumbered by her peers and was faced with giving into peer pressure or standing up for what was right.

This is a common scenario in high schools.  It takes a person of courage to go against the majority and do what they know is right.

I am proud to say, Gwen looked her peers in the face and refused to allow them to cheat.  Gwen showed great moral fortitude on that day and I couldn’t be prouder.
