I was not the homecoming queen or voted best looking. I actually never even had a boyfriend in high school and only attended school dances in groups of girls that did not get asked. I was popular but it was for all the things that you dont want to be popular for. Girls were very rude to me almost every day and would cut me back down whenever I got any shred of self confidence. A prisoner in my own school and the bullies were the warden. Being called fat in front of boys that you think are cute is something that I had to endure for years and learned to live with the redicule without putting up a fight.

It took me a very long time to find the strength that I needed to make it in this world. It wasnt any particular incident but more like a promise that I made to myself that I wasnt going to be silent anymore. I finally figured out that I didnt deserve that treatment and I was going to go find the life that I wanted. I tore down every insecurity that I had and finally got my first boyfriend alma mater Alabama State where I got my Associates Degree. I would like to think that I could have done this much earlier on in my life and decided it was time to make my own happiness but I will never know because I didnt try. Something that I believe any girl in my situation should do if they would like to step out of the shadows and become the star that you are.Dont allow anyone to bully you into thinking that you are not good enough or pretty enough or that you have an less worth than them. You can make your life better if you believe.

"I was not the homecoming queen or voted best looking" I loved your story from the first sentence. Just because you dont win the popularity contests in high school doesnt mean you cant win in life.
