ELISE: Hi, I’m Elise Gooley. I’m a Grade 11 student and I was involved in the Roots of Empathy program when I was about 10. We would all get together in my school in the library. We would meet around a green blanket. The mom would come and bring the baby in and we got to see the baby grow up and learn new things. We got to tie into the baby’s emotions and the way the baby would react to certain things.
