During my high school years, I made the most out of available opportunities. I was an active member of western music choir, participating in almost every intra- and inter-school competition.
Never short on confidence, the only thing that irked me the most during my latter teenage years was – believe it or not – pimples.
Sudden shake in confidence
The fear of acceptance is what haunts most teenagers globally, and has an impact and bearing on the kind of individuals they eventually become.
I was no different than other children – naive, seeking approval from my peer group that included my friends, classmates, cousins, etc. – on the way I looked, the way I talked, the way I dressed, the way I styled my hair, and so on.
