Happy as a Badger

Dear Professor Sprout,

I’m a Hufflepuff and all my friends are in Gryffindor and Slytherin. It’s hard not to feel uncool when I’m around them. I’m happy as a Badger, but sometimes I wish I was cooler.

What do you think I should do?

Proud Puff

Dear Proud Puff,

Why do you want to be ‘cool’? Will it make you happier? You have friends from all houses, they like you and you like them. That should be enough. However, if it isn’t, then remember one thing . . .Cedric Diggory was a Hufflepuff and he was most definitely cool! (Not that I think it is important in the slightest.)

Be proud of yourself and proud of your House!
