Because of my relationship with my mom, I grew up having a hard time trusting women. I was constantly bullied at school and no one wanted to hang out with me. In the 8th grade I started self-harming as a way of escape. I was sick and tired of living a lie and wanted to get my life back when I heard about Mercy from a graduate.
Since coming to Mercy, God has taken the place of my desire to self-harm and my identity is in Him, not my issues. I now have total confidence in myself. I’ve learned how to trust people, especially women, and after not having many friends growing up, I now have lots of amazing friends from Mercy!
After graduation, I’m going back to high school and I’m going to tell my story to the girls in my youth group. After graduating high school, I’m going to try out for American Idol! I also want to go to Paul Mitchell cosmetology school
