Best friends don’t tell
I would trust my best friends with my deepest secret. We have known each other for many years and there are no secrets between us. I would be willing to tell them anything, and I know they would never tell anyone else.
Elaine Mok, 14, Workers’ Children Secondary School
Say it, sister
I would definitely tell my sister. We always played together when we were little and we are very close. I would hundred per cent trust her with my secret.

I’m a reticent person and I don’t tell secrets to just anyone. Instead, I usually tell them to my goldfish. I know that may sound ridiculous, but even though he may not understand what I’m saying, it just feels good to blurt out my secrets. And at least I know he won’t blabber to anyone.

Keeping things quiet
I usually share my secrets when I pray, because I believe that someone is listening and cares and that makes me feel better. It also helps me reflect on my secrets and think about what to do about them.
Kelly Chan Oi-wa, 13, Maryknoll Fathers’ School
Only the followers of my private Instagram account know my deepest secrets. I think a lot of students like to open up about themselves this way. I only let my closest, most trustworthy friends see my account; I know they’ll keep their mouths shut!

Mum's the word
Who else but my mother? Not only is she family, she’s my best friend too. She has taken care of me my whole life, and knows all my strengths and weaknesses. I know she would never tell anyone my secrets. I trust my mum more than anyone.

Secret's safe with me
I keep my secrets to myself. Gossiping is just human nature and even someone you trust could still accidentally spill the beans without meaning to. So I don’t like to risk telling my friends anything.
Chow Ah-na, 17, SKH Tsang Shiu Tim Secondary School
Our lips are sealed
I would trust my oldest friend, Jessica, with my deepest secret. We have known other since primary three. She is warm and outgoing, and whenever either of us is upset, we always comfort one another. We are so close that I know I can tell her anything.
Daisy Cheng, 15, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School
Trust is a must
I would tell my deepest secrets to my boyfriend, because I know he will listen and be understanding, and most importantly, he won’t tell anyone else. He is the most trustworthy person I know.
Anny Chu, 15, Fung Kai Liu Man Shek Tong Secondary School
Stuffed with secrets
I tell all my secrets to my favourite teddy bear. It was a birthday present from Grandma and I have had it almost all my life. If I need to cry, I cry with my bear, and if I have a secret, I tell it to my bear. It’s my most trusted friend.
