Ella Lee My Message Today
SAN ANTONIO — A local 9-year-old is turning the tables on bullying. Ella Lee decided to inspire other children to love and accept each other.
This week Lee published a book with the purpose of combating bullying.
When most kids are dreaming of what they want to be when they grow up this San Antonio 4th grader is already living the dream.
“My friends are like no fair, no fair,” Lee exclaimed. “But then they are like, ‘get me a copy.’”
The Carson Elementary School student penned the book “My Message Today” to inspire other children. Each page features a quote and a picture to help others think positively.
“Trust God and you can do anything,” Ella read out loud.
“Kids can enjoy it because it’s like a fortune cookie without the cookie,” Ella described.
Her mother, Crystal Holmes, said Ella was inspired after going through her own tough times. She says writing the book and reading the book can be therapeutic. There are empty pages for readers to log their thoughts and reflect in writing.
“I remember 4th grade was tough,” her mother recalled. “There were cliques and bullying. Ella just wanted to do something to tell others that they are not alone… and give encouragement and hope.”
“She has a kind heart.”
