BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN

Ava learns how to feel comfortable - SCENARIO:

Ava lives in West Virginia with her parents. When she was born her parents always knew that Ava is going to be an amazing child. Ava was born with small red spots all over her face. Her parents thought that the red spots will gradually go away. When Ava started school at the age of 5 years old, Ava still had the red spots on her face. Her parents was very worried about Ava. Ava was teased from kindergarten to her senior year. Her classmates would tease her by calling her names like “connect the dots” “needle head” and so on. This made Ava to dislike herself. Her parents did everything they could do to help Ava. They took her to every specialist they could find. They could not get any results because no one seems to know why Ava had the red spots on her face. Ava became very insecure about herself, she felt she was ugly, no one is going to like her and she will never have friends. Ava didn't want to go out anywhere, she stayed home to be by herself.

A year goes by and its time for Ava to go to college but Ava decides she is not going to college because she doesn't want to be teased again. Ava is in her bedroom sitting on her bed listening to music and her mother walks in Ava's bedroom and sits beside Ava. Ava turns off the music. Ava's mother softly grabs Ava's hands and says, “Ava, my beautiful baby. I don't want you to give up on your dreams. You are a beautiful child and GOD made you unique. You are very special and you are so talented. Please honey, don't give up.” Ava stares at her mother and gives her a huge hug and says, “Ma, I will think about it but Ma, thank you for loving me.” Her mother stands up and walk towards the door, look back and says, “Of course, you are my baby” she smiles and walk out. Ava thinks about what her mother said to her all day and all night.

The next morning Ava is ready and dressed to go college. Ava goes to her parents bedroom door and Ava yells, “MA, I'M READY!” Ava's mother wakes up immediately because she didn't know why Ava is yelling. She gets up from her bed, walks to the bedroom door and opens the door. She sees Ava ready and dressed. Her mother smiles and tells her to wait in the livingroom. Ava's mother is ready to drive Ava to her first time at college. They arrives to the school and Ava's mother parks the car. She looks at Ava and says, “Remember, you are beautiful and unique. Love the skin you are in. You have something special to offer.” Ava kisses her mother on the cheek and replies back, “I love you Mom.” Ava nervously opens the car door and walks slowly into the school building. Her mother drives away. Ava is walking to her classes and she notices she hasn't been teased all day. Ava is in her last class when a young man named Mark sits beside Ava. Mark says, “Hey, you are a new student. If you need a tour of the school, just let me know. I'll be your tour guy.” Ava looks around the classroom because she couldn't believe he is talking to her. Mark sees her looking around and says, “Why are you looking around the classroom? I am talking to you pretty girl.” Ava smiles and says, “Thank you.” Mark smiles back. Class is over and Ava is outside waiting for her mother to pick her up from school. Before her mother arrives Mark walks over to Ava and tells her, “The next time you need a ride, I can take you home” and he walks to his car. Soon after, Ava's mother arrives. When Ava gets in the car with her mother Ava is smiling. Ava's mother knows she had a great day.

Two years later Ava and Mark are really close friends and Ava has a best friend named Sarah. Ava had to make a speech in her English class and she says, “One time in my life, I thought, I was ugly because I felt different. I have these red spots on my face but I realize it made me unique. We all are not the same. I love my skin and I love myself. I wouldn't change who I am. I am comfortable with myself. You should be comfortable with yourself. Don't change who you are.” Everyone claps in the class and Ava knows her purpose is to help others.
