This is not me in the photo, but It's how I used to feel and I know this concept is over used and cliché but I felt it was something I needed to do. The model, Molly, has also felt this same way.
From the time I was in elementary school I was judged. I had no friends, I just didn't fit in, I live in a small town and I was different nobody could accept that. I remember sitting down at a lunch table and everyone would get up and move.. I was in the 5th grade. I don't think they realized that years of not fitting in would affect me this much. All through high school it was the same thing, I didn't attend my high school graduation just because I never wanted to see any of them again. But in college everything changed, I picked up a camera and realized I'm not "weird" I'm creative and that is a good thing.. I found friends..and a boy who I love, who accepts me for me. I found I have a passion for something that I am good at.
I don't think I'd be who I am today if it wasn't for everyone who judged me, called me names, made fun of me, refused to be my friend, and treated me like a complete outcast. So I want to thank you.
I want to do a sequel to this about how I feel now, inspired and accepted for who I am.
