"People have always make assumptions. [...] And I think people started really identifying me with those assumptions. Which is media, I understand that. But at the same time, I felt like I had to step in at some point and relate to people my experience. And relate to people the truth of my life and where I come from."
Who would’ve thought I’d end my McKinley days right where I started? Back on top. I got into the school of my dreams, and we won Nationals. Plus, I’m feeling stronger every day. Everyone else is so emotional, but I don’t feel that way. I guess I’ve cried enough tears for three graduations. Or maybe it’s just hard to feel weepy when I look at my friends. They’ve grown into such incredible people. Nothing’s gonna stop any of them.
