Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Poppy here, and since it’s back to school time, I wanted to talk about something that I see all the time. As you may know, umm, so people consider me kinda of a nerd. Yup, it’s true, but you know what I’m over it – I embrace my nerdiness. But it wasn’t always like that. I mean we all know that the kids at school like to make fun of smart kids. Have you ever played dumber than you are because YOU WERE AFRAID you’d get made fun of?
Well if you have, then SMARTEN UP Sister! Being smart is a good thing, and it doesn’t mean you have to be a nerd. The reason other kids make fun of the smart kids is because they’re jealous – jealous of your good grades, your study habits, of how easy school is for you. They feel bad and they want you to feel bad too.
BUT don’t let them hold you back – and if you show you’re insecure about they may tease you even more. And holding back in school may really mess up your future – I mean after all, wouldn’t you rather be called a nerd every once a while but know you’re heading off to college? When you’re accepting your diploma, you probably won’t even remember the names of all those kids who dared to tease you, the proud, the smart – the NERD!
