When 10-year-old Amanda Moore noticed a new boy at school sitting alone at lunch, she tried to introduce herself. However, he spoke very little English and could not understand her kind words.

Rafael Anaya had recently moved to California from Mexico. He was still in the process of learning English and only knew a few common phrases. It must have been terrifying to be in a new elementary school full of people he didn’t understand, but Amanda wasn’t going to let a little language barrier stand in her way. That evening, she used Google Translate to write a letter to Rafael in Spanish.

The translation wasn’t perfect, but Rafael understood it. The letter reads: “Would you like to sit with me today? Look for me and I will show you where I sit. We can color or simply tell scary stories. Thank you for your time. Signed: Amanda”

When she asked her mom if it was okay to deliver the letter, Kimber was so full of pride that she taught her daughter how to fold it “old-school style.”
