Stomp interns sent for an assignment -- and they end up crying

Have you said thank-you to someone to show how grateful you are for them today? Though it might be a small gesture, it sure can make a huge difference in your life, as well as the life of that person.

That is exactly what the Stomp interns Vidhya, Cindy, Steffi and Kartini experienced during their recent assignment.

More often than not we tend to take the people in our lives for granted, and sometimes even without realising especially since they are always there for us. We may show that we appreciate them with the usual “I love yous”, “thank yous”, and occasional social media shoutouts, but how often do we actually tell them how important they are to us?

We were thus tasked to put together a little surprise thank-you video for any one person we were thankful for, to express our gratitude for them.

To keep it a surprise, the four of us tricked our loved ones into thinking they were going to be interviewed on their school/career lives as part of a special project for Stomp (so hey, it was not entirely a lie), but of course little did they know what they were in for.

Prior to the assignment, we were excited to see the reactions of our loved ones, but we certainly  did not expect for it to be an emotional moment for ourselves as well.

Some of us shed tears, shared laughter, and loads of funny shocked expressions, but what matters most is that warm smile we put on their faces after they heard what we had to say -- that was truly priceless.

And we sure hope our video inspired you to thank a special someone in your life as well. Showing someone you appreciate them does not always have to be a huge grand gesture, it could be something as simple and as meaningful as this.

Do you have any important person in your life that you would like to thank? Send us a video or a write up to show us how much that person means to you. Do not forget to include photos of you and that special person as well!
