International Day of Happiness!

Did you know today is International Day of Happiness? Well even if you did, I bet you didn’t know that the United Nations are behind it. Back in 2012 these clever folk agreed that happiness should be a fundamental human goal, and that we should all observe International Day of Happiness on the 20th of March each year to promote it. So… here we are, celebrating it!

But what makes people happy? And what does happiness even mean? Well, UnCOVered caught up with some of you to find out, student to student!
