Meet Our New Contributor, Amanda Michelle
For some people writing is simply a hobby. But for me, writing is so much more. It’s my passion. Writing is sometimes a stress reliever, or a way to get out the words I can’t say, it helps me to express myself in ways that my mouth never could. When I write I feel powerful.
My name is Amanda, I’m 16 years old, and I attend Mainland High School. Being a high school student isn’t all what it seems. I think I skipped the whole ‘finding yourself’ stage and jumped right into a grown up because as of now I know where I want to go in life. Yes, I make mistakes, and I do very stupid things, but ignorance is bliss. Every day I grow, I learn more and I change. There isn’t a day that goes by where I find myself questioning life, but I think that’s what makes it so beautiful. Every day is a mystery. I hope I can inspire people one day by making my dreams come true by showing girls out there (and even guys), that even though life isn’t easy there are so many reasons to keep going. Giving up is never an option.
My goal for the future is to become an editor of a fashion magazine but until that happens I’m just taking it one day at a time. Other than writing, I am also passionate about music, fashion and art. I am easily inspired. I’m infatuated with nature and the world. I’m an explorer. I believe in always putting my best foot forward and putting my all into anything I do. I will never let anything or anyone hold me back. I am strong. I believe in myself, and I know I can do anything I put my mind to. I’ve always been very independent. I like to do things by myself so I know they’re getting done right. I love to win.
When I’m not writing you can probably catch me daydreaming or doodling in the margins of my notebook. I tend to color outside the lines. I enjoy taking walks or lying in the grass. I like to be alone a lot, to be able to think without any interruptions. I can be very quiet and other times extremely loud. I believe in appreciating the little things in life. I would hate to live everyday taking what I have for granted.
Some people may call me weird, but I prefer that than being called normal because I am not normal. I am very different but I like being different, I like to keep people guessing. Every day is a new beginning.
