To me, RESPONSIBILITY means….for example, when my sister falls, I ask her if she is ok then I help her up. That is the responsible thing to do.
Describes Me: Cute
Favorite thing about GP: Having Fun
Red Group: De’Mya
To me, RESPONSIBILITY means…to keep your stuff safe at all times. When the teacher ask you to get water and you never come back that is not being responsible.
Describes Me: Pretty
