Q:Hi Emily! I saw your post on Day 7 of your Writer's Challenge and I completely agree with some of the ridiculous things people say- I've had a lot of those said to me too. I got sick during my senior year (when I was currently ranked #1 in my high school class) and one classmate had the audacity of accusing me of "faking sick to get an easy A" and keep my academic ranking. So I definitely understand that the misunderstandings need to stop and I want to thank you for your advocacy!
Wow, that’s a horrible thing to be accused of. I’m sorry you had to experience such unkind words and I hope that person has since overcome their ignorance. Congrats on keeping such a great academic standing despite getting sick during your senior year! I remember how that was. Not easy to do!
Thank YOU for reading and for sharing a little bit about your experience! I hope you’re well (or as well as you can be considering the circumstances)!
