I was bullied a lot for being a nobody so I was bound and determined that I was going to be a somebody. I have a dream to be a singer, I like to sing, since I was really little. I started looking at colleges. I became interested in Wolverhampton University. I am so determined to go to that now for music technology.
Then I did the pageant thing for scholarships. So people making fun of me just brought me to do a whole bunch of different things just to have more fun and I have more fun because people bullied me. I achieved more.
My mom gave me Doggy in second grade. It was her Valentine’s gift from her boyfriend and I really fell in love with it. It was about the size of me in second grade, now it's about one third the size of me. Ever since then I can't sleep without it. I made it a him because I was so done with having girl stuffed animals. I still keep him and he still sleeps on my bed with me.
My mom was willing to give up her gift for her children; she was willing to give up something she liked to make her children happy and I would like to do that to my kids when I grow up.
