I have always been a very proud person, but the tjing I’m most proud of is that I’m me. i watch evryone in my class changing to fit in. but i’m proud to be diffrent. because i believe everyone should be themselves. everyone says I’m so diffrent and i say thank you. one time i remember my friend and me hated sweatshirts. but one day when swaetshirts were the style she wore it and she still wares them. an i realized that she had just giving up on her belief. So be proud to be diffrent. it’s who you are and if you lose that…. your just some person. so stand up for yourself and be funky. so the only thing that can go wrong is if you give up. Instead speak up an be who you are. I’m gonna dye my hair orange and I’m proud of it. so be who you wanna be and don’t let anyone change that
