Introduce yourself?: I’m Keely and I’m 15 years old, my birthday is on the 27th of August and I have brown hair, brown eyes and am basically a descendent of frosty the snowman meaning I paler than snow itself. I usually tell people that I’m cool but that’s not the case just awkward to the point it’s funny but that’s okay because I think I’m cool.
What inspires you everyday?: I get inspired everyday to make my parents proud, they didn’t really get to do what they really wanted because my mother had my older sister when she was my age then me just two years later, she’s so strong and has been able to provide me with everything I need to live life like a normal, growing teenage girl and while my dad isn’t with my mother anymore he still inspires me a great deal. He makes sure I get anything I want (to a certain extent) and is always there when I need to talk or just need somebody. I want to give back to them in anyway I can.
What is something you would change about people in the world?: I wish people would just stop hating on other people, whether it’s religious issues or their skin, their weight or the way they look. People constantly feel the need to judge people and comment on them as if they need that negativity, maybe they already know that stuff, saying it will just be adding fuel to the fire and it ends very badly. People need to start accepting that were all different and need to start expressing that rather than repressing it.
How do you feel about the people in the world?: I feel like we’re mixed, were filled with so many inspiration and amazing people but at the same time there are also just so many horrible people who feel the need to ruin it for everybody else.
What is something you’ve struggled with in life?: I’ve struggled with money mostly, my mother didn’t have a steady job or boyfriend while I was growing up and as a result we moved around quite a lot, I’ve been to a total of 9 schools in the past 12 years but I also made so many different types friends taht really helped shape me into who I am. When I got into my teen years all the baby weight I had dropped for about three years until I noticed it all coming back so for the past two to three years I’ve struggled with weight and appearance and I think I always will. It’s just such a hard thing to overcome when you form such a set opinion on yourself, but I am surrounded by people who love me and remind me of this everyday.
What is a positive message you would give others?: Don’t care what people say about you, I’ve wasted so much of my life trying to change myself because I was scared of what people thought of me. I remember being 11 and going up to comprehensive school wearing a lipgloss and getting called a slut because of it and still till this day I’ve never worn a lipgloss because the comment still lingers in the back of my head and I hate it because I really want to but am too stuck on that thought. I always say that God wouldn’t have made you different if we were meant to be the same, and it makes me feel better about things.
what is some things you wanna tell people in the world and be honest? : I wish people were just more tollerant and accepting of things that happen in the world now, they need to know that’s it’s a new era and people are changing and evolving and breaking free from social constrictions. We have so many changes that have happened like LGBTQ+ which didn’t exist when I was young as well as all these other things like boys wearing makeup which some people for some reason still find odd and gross but honestly I think it’s brave and we need more people like that willing to be themselves regardless of what people think of them.
