My personal philosophy is that by being a light it shows others how to shine. I have always tried to be a light in people’s lives. I’ve often wondered what kind of superhero I would want to be. Do I want to be the strongest? Do I want to be the fastest? Do I want to have x-ray vision? Do I want to be invisible? No, I want to be transparent and see-through to others. By definition, transparent means “so sheer as to permit light to pass through.” I like to light up a room with my smile and personality and to make people feel comfortable with me right away. By being transparent, others can instantly see the real me. My motto is to be yourself and be comfortable in your own skin. Being comfortable in my own skin has been a journey for me. I have come across a lot of people in my life that have made me feel insecure and tried to change who I am. These experiences have shaped who I am today. I never wanted to be different; I just wanted to be me. Through all of these experiences, I have learned to believe what Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” As I get older, I get more and more self-confident and realize that you should cling to your imperfections because that is what makes you unique and special.
I am a completely honest and straightforward person because I am not afraid to say what I mean; I am frank. People sometimes think that being frank is not always a good thing, but then they learn to realize that it does not come from a place of being hurtful or mean spirited, but a place of being truthful and authentic. My superhero name, FRANKIE, becomes blazoned across my chest. FRANKIE is an acronym that stands for my personal traits. Each letter in my name represents who I am. “F “ is for free.
“R” is for real.
“A” is for authentic.
“N” is for natural.
“K” is for keen.
“I” is for inspiring.
“E” is for emotional.
