Dream to be a Model

Dear, Tyra
My name is Amonee' Washington, a 15 year old girl from a small town Hollywood, SC. Im in the 10th grade and I want to believe that I can achieve. I've always dreamed of being a model but people around me always down talked me and told me I can't. I was teased since I was younger why because I was the only dark skinned girl around. I would be called different names and I night all I could do was cry. I would ask god why me, why did I have to be so dark and everybody else were light. It got to the point I would try to wear lighter make up to lighten myself.
No I'm not writing this so you can feel sorry for me, but I want someone to here my story. I remember my 6th grade year and everybody had a boyfriend but no me. I had this crush on this boy who I thought was so cute. Somehow everybody at the school found out and he told me I would never have a boyfriend because I was so black. That hurt me so bad that I never crushed again. I felt like no one wanted me and I was a joke. I was called every name from, toothpick, tree, pencil, blackie, midnight anything you could name.
As I grew older I started to feel more of myself. God created me for who I am not for what I look like, I'm a beautiful young woman and one day I will make a lovely wife and mother. I've prayed if I do have kids they won't have to go through what I had and I don't think no one should. Yeah I still get picked on everyday but I take it with pride. I want to send a message out to girls my age who have been through what I have and have felt the way I have. I have to believe I can achieve and no matter what god is on my side.
I watch your show and I hear the stories of what people have gone through especially you. No one can feel the pain like you do. I try to explain myself and tell people what goes on and they'll say I understand NO you don't. The things people go through on a daily basic are crazy. You have to live life like it's your last. I wish you could have a topic about this on your show and let people know that you are not alone, same thing your going through someone else is or have been. I want them to hear my story and open their eyes, not feel sorry for me. “You can't take back the past but you can always try to change someone's future “.
This is my life. My story and I want to change the future. I Hope you take the time and read this letter. And try to understand where I'm coming from or even imagine the pain I have been through. This is what made me.
