JUST A GIRL ON A MISSION TO SPREAD POSITIVITY, KINDNESS & ACCEPTANCE . . . ONLINE & IN THE REAL WORLD

7585926032_IMG_0074Hey there! I’m Katie, a seventeen-year-old high schooler trying to figure out her place in the world. If you were to meet me in person you would notice three things about me immediately: I am blonde, I laugh too much, and I am extremely awkward (or at least I feel like I am and it probably shows). So you may have guessed it, this chick typing away on a keyboard is an introvert. Once I become comfortable around certain people, I open up and they get a look at my personality, who I really am: An over-excited, generally optimistic, open-minded girl who has a good sense of humor and a strong passion for making people smile. I have a strong desire to spread the message of acceptance and endless kindness. I mean it’s just crazy the effect you have on both you and the person on the receiving end of your comment, and only you have the power to decide what that effect is. It’s beyond amazing what can happen when you decide to build people up instead of tearing them down. I have always wanted to create content about this online and considered YouTube many times over and it always comes back to me realizing how awkward that would be for people to watch me struggle to try and make eye contact with a camera. So here I am, creating a blog. I love to write and what better way to test my creative capabilities than by writing about my daily life, experiences, and interests and posting about it online for the world to see? So hello world. This is me.
