This disorder will not define me.
It is not my whole being, because I am more than that.
I am a daughter, and my parents love me.
I am a big sister, and my siblings love me no matter what.
I am a friend, and those who are close to me are lucky.
I am a peer educator, and people can learn from the way that I think and teach.
I am a hard worker, and the time and effort I put into things shows.
I am beautiful, inside and out.
I am a student, and I am working to improve myself through education.
I am a writer, and what I say has an impact.
This is not all I am, this disorder is not the sum of my being. No matter how it looks today I know I will find a reason to keep pursuing my dreams tomorrow.
