Let me get you acquainted with Skylar Stecker. She’s 15. She hails from Wisconsin. She’s on her hustle as a singer. But from her Instagram, you may only guess the latter. And I’ll tell you one thing, I certainly didn’t look as put-together or grown as Skylar does when I was 15. But does that warrant other people to call her “fake?”
Nah. And that’s not cool.
Skylar’s story is exactly why I started my initiative #WeAreMore.
She’s stunning, and yes she looks older than most teenagers. So what? That doesn’t mean she’s a fake person. When meeting her, you’d instantly realize that. She’s sweet, giggly, and even a little timid. And when taking on #WeAreMore, Skylar revealed she basically has two left feet.
Yep, she’s clumsy AF, even though her poised pics would lead people to believe otherwise. Even though it’s become second nature for us to judge people by their social media image, we need to cut them (and ourselves) some damn slack.
