Well-Being Superhero summary taken from an email
March 6, 2012 § Leave a comment
My character is called ‘The Optimist’ and I go around in a yellow cape, tiara and cuffs, a bit like Wonder Woman, and do good deeds around uni. It’s mad – but that’s Goldsmiths. I help people carry heavy bags, lend rose tinted glasses to really sad people, and say things like ‘you can do it!’ when they doubt themselves. Whenever it looks like someone needs help I lend a hand. Apart from that, going to the library in a cape leads to making quite a few people smile, so just being around cheers up the atmosphere. The serious issues I’m addressing are about the state of well-being of our society in general and how to form communities in London. Eventually I hope to persuade other people to decide to take the community/well-being superhero attitude too, by looking out for where they can help and acting on it.
