“I think people assume I’m stupid. ‘Cause of the way I act, like a Californian. With my speech, and just how I sit and how I stand. People assume I’m not as smart. Even though I’m in multiple advanced classes. I sometimes act dumb around my friends, once I’m home I’m more mature. Because that’s just what’s been expected of me, I definitely play into it. It’s a side personality I can turn off.
Because of the whole thing of my speech being “stupid”, people also like being stupid with me. - They think of me kinda as a safe zone. Sometimes it’s good sometimes it's bad. People can get too comfortable.”
