Youth Speaker

As a teenager, I remember hearing the phrase “it gets better” and endlessly waiting for that to be the case for me. I spent most of my youth repressing my identity and wishing I could fit in. I focused on pleasing others and always tried to live up to people’s expectations of me. The more I tried to be someone I wasn’t, the farther I was going down the wrong path. I realized things wouldn’t start getting better until I started living my life for me. This process didn’t happen overnight and had many challenges. I had to face my insecurities and gain self-love and respect. After reaching out for support from those I trusted, hard work and perseverance, not only did things eventually get better, they got great. The things I so deeply wanted to change about myself when I was younger are the very things I celebrate today.
