My difference is my English accent. It may not sound like much, but in 1st and 2nd grade it was a big deal. It is not as strong as it used to be, but I still kind of have an English accent.
When I was in 1st and 2nd grade, people started to make fun of my accent. They said I sounded like a “fail.” I felt really sad and stupid for having a stupid accent. I started to try and not to talk at all but I really like to talk so it was impossible. Then, at the end of 2nd grade, people started to stop teasing me. I felt a lot better. Now I don’t get teased at all.
I also started to accept my accent because I thought I am from England and here, English people have accents. It’s just part of life. Everybody in life has to accept who he or she is, it’s what makes us special. It’s what makes us, us.
