​Teens deserve a place that’s supportive

Many teens dislike high school because of drama and other problems they face on a daily basis.

Some students bully others because they are different. For example, if a guy or girl is into the same sex, they are treated differently.

Transgender people can’t even be who they believe they are born as. Everyone wants to judge them and tell them that they weren’t born that way. Many are not accepted by parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts.

I don’t think many teens understand the impact they have on others.

We all should be treated equally. So I respect anyone who has the courage to be themselves knowing that this world is judgmental.

The most important reason I bring all this up is because, I believe there should be a program for all students who need help with a place to stay or a supportive environment.

I believe the program could help so many students. It could give them a chance to be themselves and open up to others. Students would have a place where they don’t feel alone and where they aren’t judged.

We are all different in our own ways, but we all are the same in the inside. We just need to come together as students and put our differences aside. We all are in this together and we need to help each other, to respect each other, and not fight each other!

People wonder so many teens drop out of school. Most likely these aren’t the people who are getting bullied or judged.

It doesn’t have to be like this.
