In a hostel, there are always certain guests whom virtually everyone likes. So, it begs the question: “Why”?
The answer is relatively easy once you have seen a number of people to whom others are naturally drawn. Elise Bolling from Sydney, downunder is the latest example that comes to mind.
Back home she is a specialist in Early Childhood Education but has decided to take a “Gap Year” to work and travel. We’re glad she chose Canada.
Her popularity is easily apparent and it is something which she has gained honestly. You could apply virtually any positive adjective to describe her; but, the most appropriate would be “kind”.
That is the quality that is sadly lacking in much of today’s youth. Many (if not most) have become self-centred and self-indulgent in the fast-paced lifestyle of the 21st Century.
Their mantra, it seems, is Me! Me! Me!
But Elise seems to have learned the secret of friendship. Quite simply put, “If you want to HAVE friends; you must first BE a friend.
Anyone (and we DO mean ANYONE) who has met this remarkable young lady must know that she is the type of person whom you could count on in a crisis. Many of us have witnessed her spring to action when a friend has encountered extreme difficulties.
When her birthday came, many of the hostels guests planned a surprise party which kicked-off the instant she arrived home from work.
We can’t say enough good things about Elise. There is little to add except that no one here as ever heard her utter a bad word about anyone.
How many people can you say that about?
They ALL adore Elise!
