People make fun at me for being teachers’ pet; I am an A+ student. They look down on me. To make matters worst I am crushing on a guy who doesn’t even know I exist. I am a nobody.
Dear miss: You may not know it but someone that has never told you is admiring you, someone is looking up to you because of your character, and you need to be strong. People could call you far worst names than teachers pet, but they are trying to bring you down because you’re an outstanding student. It’s jealousy. You know that you have not offended your classmates maliciously, so that’s alright; because 10 years from now if it’s up to you, you will be more successful than the popular kids.
You can gain fame by being an educated woman and making a name for yourself. While everyone wants to fit in, school is not a popularity contest. Their young minds may not understand that, but when they mature enough and reflect they will regret treating you that way. As for the guy you are crushing in is clearly not worth beating yourself over. You are somebody. God sees your potential and your family does too. Make them proud.
