Today is International Women’s Day. I just want all females to know that you are a gorgeous human being. You should never let anyone tell you any different or let them put you down. A few days ago I got asked a very rude question. They asked me, “Do you ever not dress like a slut?” I was of course very offended by this question. It made me feel bad, but I took a look in the mirror in the store that we were in and felt comfortable and good about myself and the way I looked. So, I found the person that asked me the question and I replied, “I dress how I want and what makes me feel good about myself. You should get out if you don’t like it. I didn’t dress to impress you, I dressed to impress myself.”
You should do the same whenever someone says something to you about yourself. Take a look in the mirror and see that you are a beautiful person who doesn’t dress to impress other people. You should dress the way that makes you happy and feel confident about yourself.
For 2015, my main goal for the year is to maintain a good balance between all the things I am going to do. Now, I shall tell you what we are going to do. First, I am going to maintain good grades in my difficult classes; specifically I would like to improve my writing skills in the classes I’m taking so that way I can accomplish the second thing I am going to do in 2015. Second, I am goin to finish my book “The Diary of a Messed Up High Schooler,” on the app Wattpad. Finally, I am going to get a better job and save money for my family and of course myself. So that is the list of things I plan to accomplish and or maintain in this new year.
If Lizzie can get through this so can you and I.
Lizzie Velasquez lived her life half blind and with a syndrome that only two other people in the work had. She couldn’t gain weight and never in her life has she weighed more than about sixty- four pounds.
All her life she struggled with bullying because she was different and smaller from the others. Her parents raised her as a normal child so when she went to school for the first time she was surprised when nobody wanted to play with her. In middle school someone posted a video about her called the ugliest girl alive. The video told her to go kill herself. The comments that went along with the video were just as horrible.
She used to self harm and just thought she was so ugly. She hoped that one day she would wake up and she would gorgeous and normal. Lizzie Velasquez decided she would not let her syndrome control and take over her life.
In one of her interviews she stated her thoughts of bullying. She stated “Am I gonna let the people who called me a monster define me? No. I’m gonna let my goals and my success and my accomplishments be the things that define me.”
Lizzie now looks at the bright side to her syndrome. For one, she can eat as much as she wants and doesn’t have to worry about gaining weight. Plus, she has great hair.
She later concluded that she would become a motivational speaker and that she would right a book and get it published.Now, the motivational speaker is working on her third book, moving thousands of people’s lives everyday with her youtube channel, and is married.
My voice is uplifting. I want to use this voice to help girls feel comfortable with who they are and to feel beautiful.
Everyone is different. I am me. That’s it. Plain and simple right? Wrong. I am me. It means that I cry,I laugh, I am obnoxious and annoying, but that doesn’t mean anyone has the right to put me down. Everyone goes through a vulnerable. Where what people say get to them. We all get really insecure and shy. Most of us have gone through some sort of depression and here is what my sister used to say to me when I was going through mine. I hope these words have the same affect on you as they did in me. I know I would be a completely different person if my sister had not been there to tell me these words.
