Name: Finnley, 14 years old
Submitted by: Her cousin
Location: Amherst, NH
What's going on?: Finnley recently moved with her family from her lifelong home in the Midwest to the east coast. She had a great number of close friends in her former community and was very involved outside of school. She has had a really hard time adjusting to her new school. Despite the difficult transition, she has put herself out there and has tried out for extracurricular involvements but unfortunately has not made the cut. In short, she’s having a hard time finding her new group and could use some encouragement.
What do you love most about this girl?: She is so brave. I'm in awe of her conviction. At her age, I did not have the resolve to stand up for things that I believed in. I was a follower whereas she is a leader. She is an amazing spirit. She is unapologetically herself and that is hard for any young person in today’s, but especially so for a female middle schooler.
Anything else you want to tell us? Finnley has been through a lot in recent years. In addition to her family’s move, she has watched both her mother and her grandmother battle cancer. She is a resilient person. I hope these letters will lift her spirits and remind her how amazing she is.
