Annasophia Robb was at the annual Cantor Fitzgerald and BG&C Charity Day event on Thursday. It also happened to be 9/11, which is the purpose of the event.
Charity Day was founded in order to remember the 658 Cantor and 61 Eurobroker employees lost in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. However, it has grown exponentially since the beginning. The money goes to charities all over the world.
The Cantor Fitzgerald and BG&C Charity Day event has raised over $113 million dollars over the years for victims of terror, abuse, and natural disaster among other things.
Annasophia Robb joined a long list of celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Stiller, Michelle Williams, and Pamela Anderson.
At the event, Annasophia Robb was asked about what her character strengths are.
“My strengths are honesty and curiosity. With honesty, I’ve learned that it’s important to know the right time to share the truth. Growing up I was taught by my parents that I could do or be anything I chose.”
Robb continued, “My parents always encouraged and supported my natural curiosity through exploration. In school, I loved to ask questions and wanted to know why the world worked the way it did. I believe it’s helpful for all kids to ask questions and figure out what they believe. They can seek to change things when they see why the world is a certain way.”
Annasophia Robb was especially influenced by her mother.
“My mom has been a great role model for me, as well as my grandfather who is full of integrity, honesty, and kindness. I also learn a lot from my boyfriend who is so patient and a great listener.”
Sounds like Annasophia Robb grew up to have a great head on her shoulders, just like I’m sure her parents intended.
