How did you deal with mean girls?
“I know it’s very cliché, but you just really have to stay true to yourself. You can’t change for anybody, because then they’re not really your friends. If you try to mold yourself to what other people want you to be, then they don’t really like you for who you are. Remember that cool is up for interpretation. If you like to knit, then find someone else who likes to knit. That’s really cool, and that [person] can be your friend, even if that’s not the most popular person in school.”
How can you get a boy to notice you?
“Just have confidence and be yourself, so he can see who you really are. Maybe hang out in a group of friends, so you get to know him in an easier environment and see if you really have things in common.”
