When I was in fourth grade, the age of ten, I was an insecure little girl. I would be embarrassed by the littlest things. If I did not sit up straight in class, have the latest new clothes or have the coolest new gadgets as everyone else. I felt very different than everyone else.

I will be in a cast for six months and after that another long three months in an air cast.
