Hey you guys. It’s Lizzie and I am back with another video.
In Texas, where I live, today is the first day of school. I know everyone starts at a different time, but since it’s generally around the time where everyone is going back to school and fortunately summer is over. I wanted to make a video giving you some of my tips and advice for starting a new school year.
So, one of the biggest things that helped me throughout my school years was to tell my story. I say tell your story because a lot of times, we go into a new class room or to a new class or a grade or whatever it maybe and you go in and you’re nervous because you don’t know the other kids and they not might – they might not know your story.
For example, when I started school and I was around kids, who didn’t really know me, they were nervous because I looked different from them. And it was always hard because I was sort of shy and I never really wanted to say, ‘hey, this is why I am smaller than you’, ‘or this is why I looked different’. And instead I dealt with a lot of the name calling and the thing you’re pointing and all of that stuff.
But something that really did help was a thing that my dad suggested that we do and I was little hesitant at first, but I am so glad we did it now.
On the first or second day of school, when I started a new grade, my dad would take, go up with me, introduce me to my class and say this is Lizzie. This is her story. This is why she looks a little bit different. That way the kids are more comfortable and aware of whatever situation it might be in.
Now, I definitely think this works at any age, no matter what your situation is whether you might have a visual impairment, whether you might be in a wheelchair, whether you might not have physical disability at all, something that might just make you feel a little bit better to tell your story.
My next piece of advice would be to sit in the front. I know it’s embarrassing to sit in the front and you might think that it’s not cool to be in the front row, but I am telling you, I had to sit in the front row because of my visual problems. And at first I hated it, but it sort of just became habit and honestly I think sitting in the front row is cool, because school is cool and yep I definitely just sounded like a mom, but it is.
My third piece of advice would be to join a club or an organization or play a sport, do something that might put you out of your comfort zone, try something new, maybe your friends aren’t trying out for something that you want to do, but I highly encourage that you do it. I tried out for cheerleading when I was in middle school and I was super nervous, but I ended up loving it and it made my personality come out. I think that’s when I started realizing that I am a people person and I like to talk to new people and do new things and even though again it might be scary when you first try it. I think you’ll end up loving it.

This is something that I have to learn the hard way, let’s just say; try hard from the beginning of the school year all the way until the end. Having to say, oh at the beginning I don’t care it’s easy, we don’t really do anything, I am not going to – I won’t do my best, but then once in a time, it comes time for their report card to come out or final exams or whatever it may be and you’re freaking out thinking, why like I have to do all the extra credit, I have to do all of these things just so that you can get by. When in reality, you can start from today. You can start from right now. Try your best on absolutely everything that you do.
Lastly, I hope this one if any of the things that I have said haven’t stuck with you, I hope this one does because this one means probably the most to me and I hope it does to you.
My biggest piece of advice for starting a new school year would be to be yourself, be you, don’t change who you are to try to be in the popular group, don’t be mean to other kids just because other kids are doing it and you think it makes you look cool, don’t do that.
Be yourself, be nice to other people, be a friend to someone you might not know, who looks a little lonely, do nice things. Trust me it’s going to help you in the long run, but just remember it, you are enough just being you. You’re awesome.
Now, go and do amazing things in this school year.
