Am I an individual?

Holly Fortune, 17

People tend to have a desire to fit in. People often copy those around them - their appearance, their possessions, and their interests, in an attempt to be part of the crowd. Humans can be judgemental, so people often worry what others think of them, making standing out a challenge. However, some are brave enough to be themselves. It is important to express who we are and embrace our individuality because that makes us more confident, happier and live life the way we want to. But despite efforts to be ourselves, people don't always see us for who we really are. So in order to feel like individuals, we must be treated as individuals.
