While it may be hard to tell if someone is smiling underneath their mask, Akimi Gibson, Sesame Workshop’s vice president and education publisher for Sesame Learning, said a mask is “a sign of friendship.”
“You’re helping your friends stay safe and healthy. Did you know we can show your smiles beneath our masks? Our cheeks rise up, our eyes get smaller and there’s so many other cues, so many other signals we can provide,” Gibson said during CNN and “Sesame Street’s” back-to-school town hall.
Gibson said a “a virtual and air high five or an elbow bump and, potentially my favorite one is, using your kind words” are great ways to make new friends.
