“she was a girl who knew how to be happy, even when she was sad ... and that’s important” -marilyn monroe 💞
My story —
My name is Ariana Hastaba and I have major depression and social anxiety. Definitely not the type of girl who should be going to a public school. I lost all of my friends, they were extremely toxic and always wanted to make me feel bad. I would cry every single day when coming home from school, and still do. I just wish I could be homeschooled. I live in New York City and have been here my entire life. I am from the worst neighborhood in my borough. Mariners Harbor and Port Richmond. I hear gunshots every few nights, and my family’s dirt bikes and packages have been stolen multiple times. I live in my mother’s basement because there aren’t enough bedrooms upstairs, and I am only thirteen. I beg my mom every single day to homeschool me, school makes me want to kill myself. So please, if you are reading this, I beg you to just spread awareness of kids like me, or donate. I will appreciate any act of kindness, even just a dollar will make me so so happy.
