Ashley Manuel is a primary school teacher based in Adelaide, Australia, who is on a mission to help children today find more happiness in their lives, now and into the future, through an inspiring program Growing With Gratitude.  The program uses fun and easy to implement activities to generate happiness, promoting kindness and gratitude.
