I Am Will Powered.
I was born on January 30, 2002. I was born will a condition called Hydrocephalus which is like water on the brain. This prevented me from participating in physical education classes. I was bullied since I was about seven or eight years old. It got to the point that no one wanted to be around me because they thought I was gross. In the sixth grade I was physically attacked at school and the principal never did anything about it.
Last year I had this health teacher who was super cool. I told him about the years of bullying I had gone through. He gave me great advice about just being myself and told me to watch The Secret. After that I began to search for who I was and discovered that I did not really identity as the gender I was assigned at birth. I was assigned female at birth. My health teacher was the first person I told about this and he was very supportive about it. A few weeks later, he had the class watch The Secret.
After I had watched The Secret I noticed immediately that something in me had changed. I began to not be ashamed of who I was and I had a more positive outlook on my life. This was really reinforced when my aunt bought me The Secret book a few months after watching the film. Watching the movie and reading the book has had an amazing impact on my life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
