Grace influenced me to learn how to play the Ukelele. Now I feel more confident then ever, I even started my own music page on Instagram musicbymiguel. Anyways, she is my number one inspiration when it comes to music. “I am not like everyone else. I don't pretend to be. I don't want to be. I am me.” -Grace VanderWaal

This is an assignment for my class but I wanted to share what I typed and hope that Grace reads it, it's important to me: Grace VanderWaal has been a very inspirational character to me since I have seen her on America’s Got Talent in 2016. She has always valued confidence and to always be herself no matter the stereotypes and preferences of others which is what made her reach a high standard of living even for her age. Just like her, I have always valued confidence, but unlike her I never had confidence. Ever since I was younger, I always struggled with my lack of confidence. Everyone I knew would push me around and abuse my confidence when I was younger and because of that, I lacked a lot in everything that I did and still to this day I lack because of my low confidence and low self-esteem, but because of Grace I have found the inspiration to push myself and try to regain confidence and to actually believe in the positive aspects that everyone tells me about myself. Now because of Grace VanderWaal I can actually believe in myself. I value confidence just like Grace because confidence is the key to a successful life.
