"When I was growing up, I didn’t really know much about being popular or cliques or anything like that. In elementary school and middle school, you start to kind of realize what it’s all about.

I really know what it’s like to be accepted, and I also know what it’s like to be rejected. And those are lessons I learned in Wyomissing."
