I never have followed people. I always like to do my own thing, dress a certain way however I want. People sometimes don't like that when you are different and I have learned to love myself and be comfortable with myself to the point where I don't care what people think. I've learned from that to be confident with myself even when I don't feel confident. I just think positive to the point where people think I'm confident just to make myself feel better and not let the negative people get to me.
Currently I'm going to school for makeup and I love makeup. I have the biggest passion for makeup and I'm very confident with my work. You know, the girls at school really don't appreciate when I say "I love it, oh, I love how it turned out". The reason why I'm like that is because I take a lot of pride in my work. And even if it doesn't look the best to me, I tried my best so with that just alone it's really good to me.
I get not picked on, but it's been horrible going to school. They don't talk to me. They try to isolate people from me. They try to tell my friend, right here, to not talk to me because I was stuck up. It's not being stuck up, it’s like I will always tell them, “you guys need to be confident with your work too”. I'm not saying I'm the best but I'm not the worst either. I try my hardest so to me that's obviously going to be good.
I have a Disney Eeyore that my mom got for me. He's half broken but I still keep him. I just love him, it's like my comfort. I would never get rid of him. He makes me feel good. When I'm having a bad day I can just look at him and it brings back positive memories for me.
