What is a Wapsi girl? Well, I think the first clear answer to that is: she is whatever she wants to be. She isn’t something simply because someone else thinks she should be. I think this is why I, too, am a Wapsi girl.
Let’s face it: life is hard. Despite growing up with extremely loving and supportive parents, there is a lot to be said for the approval of your peers. Unfortunately, and for a very long time, I let many of my peers made me feel awkward and unattractive. I lacked a lot of confidence in myself, and it caused me a lot of unhappiness. The wonderful part of this story is that I overcame that. I decided that I could be whatever I wanted.
These days I make my own dreams come true, and I try to do a little bit of everything. I have a career, a house, a wonderful husband, and lots of lovely fluffy pets. I write, model, draw, act, cosplay, edit photos, work as an occasional makeup artist, create and sell crafts, and so much more. I visit my local comic shops every week, play videogames, read, engage in D&D sessions, and will debate werewolf movies with you till my dying breath. So many of these activities are said to be contradictions, but it’s important that other women out there know there is no restriction on the things you can love. You can have it all. Never let anyone convince you otherwise.
