My Story...

Growing up I was extremely quiet and very shy. I had a few friends but we were all considered “nerds”. I was made fun of all through elementary school. Called “ugly”, had my head slammed against a wall by a boy I thought was a friend, had my hair cut by girls and even had my jewelry flushed down the school toilets. I lost my dad in 1994 to cancer and my mother in 1998 to cancer which made it hard as a teen to deal with the alienation and my self-esteem issues. Even though people tell me I’m beautiful now, I still struggle with self-esteem issues but I know that I’m a beautiful person inside and my family loves me. That’s all that matters.
