Sometimes standing up for yourself and being brave is the best thing you can do. It takes courage to just be yourself no matter what other people say or think. I did a small thing just for the sake of the things I like personally. Not trying to take a stand or make a difference but to be me. I colored my bangs in my hair purple. It's my favorite color and i just thought it would look cool for myself. Because I did that, a public school district changed the dress code so that children in their school could have colored hair. The man running the school thought kids could be a good person and not just some punk with funky hair.
So yes, it is good to be yourself!
