Since I was little I’ve known I want to stand out. I know for sure I don’t want to be another face in the crowd, after death so easily forgotten by the world. I want to be remembered. I want to leave a legacy. I need remembrance and importance. Though I know to God I am extremely important, because without a single one of us in the world His plan would not interpret correctly, I long to represent. My whole life I have been that shy quiet girl who is too scared to share her opinion due to the fear of having it all wrong or people making a misinterpretation. I hate judgment and not just what it does to me, but the whole world. Eventually I turned 13. Then I noticed a slight change in myself. I wanted to be more. It was not until I was 14 though that the fire started burning. I realized all of America’s issues. What I noticed and became annoyed by ranged from bullying, homicide, suicide, false accusation, persecution, and just plain rudeness and ignorance. I was getting fed up with America. I was sick of being quiet, my voice needed to be heard. I gained confidence. I wanted to change the world and make Christ a more center figure again. The world was becoming a place consumed with swearing, violence, disagreement, and conflict. You rarely ever hear of our savior today, like He had totally been forgotten. I despised this situation. Through this situation though, I found who I was, I started speaking in a more confident and official manner and I became bolder. I am now proud of who I am and I’m not afraid to speak my mind. I am Amy Smith and I stood up, and am still standing up, for who I am.
