‘The smart girl’

There were advantages to being “the smart girl” in the high school, like good grades and college options, but Soraya Shockley discovered that excelling in some areas created deficiencies in others. “I’ve always been known as the smart girl; Not the fun girl or the cool girl, or even the nice girl, but the smart girl… In truth, I was just socially inept… As isolation set in, I started to hate going to school. I was depressed, lonely, withdrawn, and truthfully, bored out of my mind.” Her commentary is on Youth Radio.
