Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello! this is lena (nickname) i am 18 years old and currently a first year college student. I love singing and dancing, I also like writing stories. And I am a huge kpop fan (since 2011) and got more into it ever since I got found by BTS. Yes, they found me when I was at my worst and couldn’t find a light on my darkest days. When people doubted me, made fun of me for being a kpop fan, bullied and said some things about me being a kpop fan. That really affected me and made me went through anxiety and depression. But everything changed when BTS came into my life, it was the most beautiful moment in my life. I was able to meet beautiful people through the internet and became close with them. But of course years have passed and our fandom went through a lot of hardships too, not just us but also BTS themselves. It wasn’t an easy road to the top because there are a lot of people who tries to stop them. But we didn’t give up, there are times where we’ll be tired but once we gain strength we’ll be able to start again. We are forever grateful and thankful that BTS chooses to stay with us when things got tough for them. We are happy that they continued to stand and fight. They’ve come this far now and they will continue to make more music and give more spectacular performances in the future. And we armys will be here every step of the way, whatever they decide to do in their lives we will respect that and we’ll be always happy for them. As long as they’re happy too.
What Inspires You Every day? : My family and friends but if I’m going to be very specific that’ll be BTS. They inspire me everyday. They’re the reason why I am still here and why I still choose to be here. Their music made a huge impact in me and that goes for every armys around the world as well. BTS inspires me to always push and not to limit myself, and to achieve my goals in life. They always bring out the best of me and I am always thankful for that. I’ve been through a lot of hardships and struggles in life but I eventually got through them all because I know that there’s someone in South Korea who understands me, proud of me and believes in me.
