Proving them wrong. Daily story · 7 March, 2013
  • Teen pregnancy: we all have our opinions about it, and I am going to tell mine.

    Many people see teen pregnancy as a bad thing, mainly because we are kids who are having kids. Well, my sister got pregnant her senior year in high school. While she was pregnant, people would call her names and say bad things to her. They made it hard for her to be happy that she was carrying a new life inside her. She became the typical stereotype of a teenage "rez" girl. Which was getting pregnant at a young age, but she didnt want to be that stereotype. Many young girls who get pregnant drop out or give their baby up for adoption or even have their parents watch the baby. When your pregnant at a young age you have a lot of growing up to do.
    My sister broke that typical stereotype. She graduated, got a job, and is making a good life for her son. She said the hardest part about the pregnancy was the doubting and judging of others. "It only motivated me more," she said. With all the people saying she couldn't do anything with her life, it only made her want to prove them wrong and that she did.
    Now, before you go putting someone in a category or stereotype, just remember they can always break through and be something better.
