How I Chose To Be Me
Full Legal Name: Bridget Lynn Martin

This, is who I am, on paper, that is. But, I’m not just some words, numbers, and dates thrown together. No, I am an undefinable, complex human being. That’s the way I’ve always been. I am the girl who will change the world. Someone a younger me would aspire to be. I am a dyslexic writer, an oxymoron. So more on that. I was afraid my dyslexia would define me, but I worked hard and that fear is now behind me. My weaknesses make me strong and push me. I do still get words mixed up and mispronounced, but that keeps me from getting cocky. I am an Aquarius after all. Bitterly sweet. I am a fighter, so throw me in the ring with your best. I know self-defense. Knock me down, but all 67 inches of me will stand tall, stand proud. I never knew that I’d fall in love with words, really I had no clue. I wanted to make a difference, but I wasn’t sure how. I thought I’d go to the moon, but Science isn’t for me. So creativity has taken me into the galaxy. I didn’t think I’d be a warrior of words. Fighting for worlds not yet known. Creating heroes that I can call my own. I could’ve been anyone, so I chose to be me.
