I’m 5’1, which is considered short for someone my age. It feels like I can’t go a single day without someone commenting on my height. I never let it get to me though because I love being short! There are tons of perks, like fitting into small spaces, always the champion of ‘hide and seek,’ getting endless piggyback rides, and being able to quickly squeeze my way through the hallways. The best part: getting away with ordering on the kid’s menu. Obviously I wish I was able to reach the top cabinets in my kitchen, and of course, I wish I could touch the top of the volleyball net. However, I’m proud of the way I am, and I wouldn’t change a thing. And like Maya Angelou once said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
