Sophie Mullins is definitely one of the more ambitious first graders I’ve ever encountered. Fighting for the rights of all her fellow first graders, Mullins decided to stand up for what she believed in by protesting the overwhelming workload that her teachers have given her.

With a little help from her parents, she was able to write a letter to West Virginia State Senator, Joe Manchin, asking if he had a solution for the heavy workload in the first grade.

As she eloquently put:

“All we do is work, work, work. I need a break. Can you please help?”

Concerned about the welfare of his constituents, Senator Manchin called Sophie at her school, Gauley River Elementary School in Craigsville. He seemed very concerned:

“You’re working all the time aren’t you? So what I’m doing is, see, I’m giving you a break right now. I wanted you to take a little bit of time off since you work so hard. If you work hard, it’s going to pay off… keep working hard on your studies so you get smarter so you can help us.”

It’s great to see a senator taking time out for the people he represents: big and small.
