My name is Elizabeth Mitchell. I am 16 years old and just finished my second year of high school. I plan to graduate next year, so I am planning for my future now. I am an artist, and I know that the fashion industry is a tough industry to become successful in and though I do not have a lot of money, I do have a lot of potential, natural talent, and drive. I do admit I have always been a bit different than everyone else, but I have learned to embrace my rather peculiar nature. In fact I find the fact I have an open mind as one of my best qualities. The reason this industry is so hard to prosper in is because many people are scared to be different. This industry requires knowledge and creativity in order to preserve beauty. The world today is becoming more and more scary, the creation of art and gives people hope that there can still be beauty in such an ugly world. I am truly a butterfly, many times underestimated, but no matter what situation I bring happiness and joy. I believe society is a monster in the closet waiting to attack the most vulnerable, though I am just a butterfly I am strong. I am innocent not ignorant, timid not insecure.
