How did 你 deal with mean girls?
“I know it’s very cliché, but 你 just really have to stay true to yourself. 你 can’t change for anybody, because then they’re not really your friends. If 你 try to mold yourself to what other people want 你 to be, then they don’t really like 你 for who 你 are. Remember that cool is up for interpretation. If 你 like to knit, then find someone else who likes to knit. That’s really cool, and that [person] can be your friend, even if that’s not the most 流行的 person in school.”
How can 你 get a boy to notice you?
“Just have confidence and be yourself, so he can see who 你 really are. Maybe hang out in a group of friends, so 你 get to know him in an easier environment and see if 你 really have things in common.”
