Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi 🙂 my name is Dakota Burton, I’m 14, a freshman in high school, and I love halloween.
What Inspires You Every day? : When I’m walking down the street and I see someone overflowing with confidence, it makes me feel so much better because they just seem to be glowing.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Not all friendships last forever.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I want to be able to be happy. I’ve been diagnosed with depression for about three years and I’ve been battling it with everything I can. My best friend is helping me and I’ve been a lot happier than I was.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic has affected me by ruining a lot of friendships lol. I don’t mean it’s the pandemic‘s fault, obviously if some time apart would in a relationship then clearly wasn’t that strong.
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : Don’t compare yourself to people. Don’t wish you had someone else’s life, no matter how perfect it seems. You have no idea what they’re going through, and comparing yourself to them will just make you feel worse.
What questions would you like to ask others?:How do you tell your racist grandpa to stfu?
