Rookie (10/22/94 / new york state)


As I grew up I was put in dresses and given babies I didn’t want I wanted to play with the toys the boys were playing with I didn’t want to dress those dolls in the cloths I didn’t like the color pink or blue I liked green I didn’t want to be in home ec I wanted to be in Tec I wanted to build I wanted to work with wood no one wanted me to work like that they said leave it to the boys I was just as strong as them I didn’t care that I was a girl they wanted me to work in the kitchen they wanted me to play dress up instead guns and building blocks they wanted me to grow up and act like a young lady I rebelled and if I had dent I wouldn’t be the proud woman I am today and always will be.
