“Why am I not good enough?”
The words of a seventh-grade student at Queen Creek Middle School have left many speechless and even some in tears.
Olivia Vella choked up as she stood in front of her class last week, delivering a powerful six-minute monologue about the reality of being a teenage girl today.
The 13-year-old openly discussed the struggles young people face during those “awkward” middle school years. The peer pressure to look and act a certain way, the bullying, all the challenges of transitioning into adulthood. The presentation left her class speechless, and the internet in awe. The video of her presentation online has garnered thousands of views and it is still growing.
