Whitney Kropp is one of those teens who was an outcast at Ogemaw Heights High School in Michigan. So all the bullies thought it would be just hilarious to vote for her as the home-coming court as a joke; the bullied teen told the Today show that she was always made fun of for being “different”. She wears black clothes, and sports unusual hairstyles that made her stand out from the others. She was “thrilled” when she discovered that she was nominated to be on the home-coming court. But then it was revealed to her that it was a joke-“Some kids thought it would be funny to put me in there as a joke, to make fun of me,” she told the “Today” show. She is having the last laugh now, she intends on showing up to homecoming with her head held up high. Her town showed they support, she dines for free at a local restaurant, and her hair and make up are also for free. Also the bonus of being on the Today show. The women of the week goes to Whitney Kropp, for keeping her head up high when others taunted and bullied her. and for standing up to all of the bullies when she could have taken the easy way out. She not only is beautiful, intelligent, but also strong.
Happy Monday everyone, it’s a beautiful morning and honestly I don’t understand why Monday’s get a bad reputation. Why do people hate Monday’s? If anyone can explain this to me please feel free to do so. Anyways I was reading a fascinating blog about a woman name Lizzie Velasquez, who was born without Adipose tissue (body fat), which is a condition that is so rare that only two other people in the world is known to have this condition. She has been taunted, bullied and cyber bullied on the internet. On YouTube she was named the worlds ugliest women, and one person even commented that she should go kill herself. But she did not let the that stop her from being the best that she can be, she is now a 23-year-old college student, a motivational speaker, and a published author. And when people stare at her, she wants to go up and tell them to stop staring and start learning. So in honour of her I have started a new event on my blog nameD: Women of the week, to honour inspirational, successful, beautiful, women who’s stories will inspire all of us men and women alike to be the best person we can be.
