Here’s fourteen things I’ve learnt while being fourteen.

  1. It’s okay to be different. Embrace your quirkiness and individuality!
  2. Be proud of your background! I am so proud to be black and of my ethnic background.
  3. Keep hold of the things you love and cherish them.
  4. Whatever you’re going through,isn’t a ‘phase’, it’s part of growing up. A stage or a moment in  your life where you decide what to do and how to deal with it
  5. Being a feminist is rad as heck. Voicing your opinions too! Don’t let your voice be silenced or unheard.
  6. Don’t be afraid to put people in their place! – Even your friends and family.
  7. Sometimes, in order to keep the rules; you have to break them.
  8. Hard work always pays off and it doesn’t go unnoticed either!
  9. Be U4U – don’t change yourself in fear of others judgement!
  10. Kindness is everything!
  11. Avocado legit tastes great with everything!! Especially on toast sprinkled with feta cheese! Mmmm
  12. Always fight for what you believe in; but never proceed in violence. Result in peace and love. Always.
  13. You don’t need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to. Because it’s fun. Because it makes you happy.
  14. Gender pronouns are important.
