New Skin
If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?


I would choose to be with ones who make me happy and ones I love

I think I would do it for one day just to see what it would feel like to be someone different. I would want to spend the day as a man. To see whether there the sexes do get different treatment.

So much changes in one year. Last year I turned 17 and I felt like I grew into myself. Everything that has happened in my life has shaped me. I’m a twin so to become a new person for a year would mean I would be losing the very essence of who I am. What would it be like to be someone who has never experienced loss even for one day? I don’t think I would want to be that person. They have never had struggle, pain, compassion, growth. My friends have said I’m an inspiration. That they are proud of how strong I am. Why would I want to give that up to be someone else?

Today is the first day of a brand new year. So many possibilities. I don’t really do resolutions but I know that this is a year where I will make myself a priority. Have fun. Dare to dream.
