my friends and family. they motivate me to do good everyday.
What is something you would change about people in the world
the way we constantly treat towards others. we are all human but we’re all different. we are either being brought down because of our gender, race, religion, sexuality, body shape, skin color, etc. it’s 2017 and everyone is still being discriminated for everything.

my view on society today is just how pessimistic and hateful people can be.

i’ve struggled with depression and anxiety. i’m working on overcoming them though.
What is a positive message you would give others
do what you want. whatever it is, just do it as long as you’re happy, regardless of judgement from your peers.
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
well like i said in the beginning of this interview, i aspire to join the armed forces after i graduate high school. i hope to apply myself to the marine corpse. i also hope to marry my boyfriend one day and have kids with him also.
