A couple weeks ago, I challenged my readers to take part in the “I am an…” meme. Writers were asked to tell us what they were like as a child, and now, to show that there is a huge variety of people doing a huge variety of things. We do not fit into stereotypical boxes and just because someone liked pink and dolls as a girl doesn’t mean she won’t be a scientist, and just because someone didn’t do well in certain classes in high school doesn’t mean they can’t study that later on.
Here are the submitted posts – they’re all great reads, so go check them out!
