KU students share their positive stories from the past week

As students we tend to dwell on the negatives due to stress, however there are a lot of positive things that happen in our lives that tend to get overshadowed.

Speaking about positivity can help bring a change to our perspectives and how we view different elements of our day-to-day life.
