I was called a tomboy; it was just who I was

I’ve always known that I was different, from about the age of five I knew that I wasn’t like other girls. I was shocked to find out that other girls didn’t like the same things I did. I was called a tomboy, it was just who I was. I climbed trees, hated dresses and my best friend was a boy. I didn’t have my first crush on a girl until I was in the 4th grade. My sister’s 2nd grade teacher was the sweetest person I had ever met…she was like a grown up but somehow not.
