MY HERO Global Learning Circles Middle/High School Circle May 2016
Check out the stories, art, audio and/or short films about WHO or WHAT inspires teenagers from around the world

Mendy Kanu and his students from the Children's Foundation of Technology in Sierra Leone participated in the MY HERO Global Learning Circle with some pretty impressive results... THANK YOU from your Facilitator and the MY HERO team for spreading messages of PEACE and inspiration with your music and your high level of participation.

Wendy Jewell - Facilitator - MY HERO Global Learning Circles

Congratulations to Mendy and his students for being named:
WINNER of the MY HERO YOUTH ENGAGEMENT AWARD Song Contest for Future Generation!

Another Learning Circle finished. My pupils discovered heroes among their close people, they found out about heroes from other countries. They spent hours searching, analyzing, discussing about different people. They felt themselves a part of a big team.

Thank you to all school partners who contributed to this circle, thank you to our facilitators Wendy and Barry who helped us during the whole process.

I am glad that I was one of the members of this facinating group and I hope to meet all of you in our next projects.

Best wishes,


Here is the link for our class's Organizer Page with student essays. We hope you enjoy reading them.

My students and I took part in the  "My hero Project' for the first time. It's an excellent project which unites people of different cultures! My students have learned to work in a team, to think over the question "Who is an example for me, Whom I'm proud of?" It's very important! They have learned to be tolerant and besides working on our Class Survey we have learned more about the place we live in! My students were very happy when they got letters from our partners! It's a valuable experience!

This year, my students and I have taken part in the My Hero Learning Circles Project for the first time and we found the experience so exciting and useful. For such a long time I wanted to learn how to make short videos and here the chance occurred. I have tried it first on my own, then, having succeeded, I realized I can motivate and instill my students to do it as well. They enjoyed it! We did it! It is a thing that we are not taught at school through the curricula, thus it is a step forward in our personal development process. We are very thankful for the provided opportunity. Thank you to the project coordinators. Hope we shall see each other online next year!

These are the students who are making an attempt to decide to decide for themselves who a hero is and if they need a hero.

Elena Bogoeva - Teacher

Heroes are those persons who change the world, who make a difference and help others. They are an example for us so I think we should all try to become one them because the world needs heroes nowadays more than others.
