"The hardest thing about being a teenager is middle school. Everybody's in groups. There's the popular group, the jocks, the nerd group, the cool kids, and the dramatic group. I try just to be myself, be nice to everyone, and treat everybody as equal. The best thing about being a teenager is having more control over my life and making my own decisions. The hardest decision for me right now is about college. I want to be a teacher someday; I've always liked little kids."
