my name is Dezaree Walker, and i am 14.
What inspires you everyday
knowing that no matter the situation or complexities i have each day no one can keep me from my goals but myself and my decisions. i can make my life what i want it to be. no one can take that away from me.
What is something you would change about people in the world
i don’t think i want to change anyone in the world. i just want to change the things that we are taught. most things are just hypocritical or based on ones opinions and other suffer from that.
What is your view on society today
society pushes everyone to be the same and follow certain rules. it keeps people from being who they are, and when you have others hiding them selves we begin to have a world that’s black and white.
What is something you’ve struggled with
i live in a small town where the majority of the population is white. at school i am in pre ap classes, and in the group that i am in has only 4 black kids including me. it always come across as a surprise when a substitute or new teacher sets their eyes on us. they make a face as if we don’t belong in the class. to make matters worst i am gay. i am a female. i am black. i am gay. these are all things that can and go negatively affect me. it’s kept me from being unhappy for a while.
but i realized i am here to make myself happy and fulfill my hope and dreams.
What is a positive message you would give others
in life you will encounter obstacles that will be tough to over come. it’s just part of the road we take. when you do encounter them don’t let them defeat you as a person. the greatest strength you will ever have is your heart. you can’t just think with your mind because anyone can confuse you and mess with your head. you need your heart to continue in the world and make some life changing decisions. never lose track of what you want. with out your heart you have nothing. you must love so you may survive. love your life. love your thoughts, and don’t allow someone to tear you down.
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
i want to make an good impact on the world. big or small. i want to make something great of the world. just the little things anyone does can make or break the world. i believe everyone has the opportunity to do and be something great, and that is what i want to do.
