I’ve lived in Alaska for 6 years, and every day I still see the beauty in the rawness of nature. I stand in awe of this world, and all it’s hidden gems. These photos inspire me to get outside and explore this great state of mine.
My name is Elizabeth Johnston, I’m 18 years old and in 12th grade. Any person diagnosed with dwarfism or any type of physical disability should go by there name that was rightfully give to them. It never hurts to ask a person what there name is. Some struggles that I’ve faced with being a dwarf is ultimately bullying. I dealt with bullying for three years straight during my elementary and early middle school years. I turned to homeschooling after the bullying worsened for myself, but later I realized that I shouldn’t care what people have to say about me or my physical differences because I am who God wanted me to be. What people have said and will say in the future about me negatively are only dust on my shoulders and will easily be blown away. My dream is to become a Registered Nurse after I graduate high school this year. Class of 2020 baby!!! My passions are caring for others, art, animals, soccer, and God. Without Him I wouldn’t be where I am today. To today and future generations ahead, I’d like for them to know that don’t be afraid of anyone you see physically different, go up ask for their name, and conversate with them. Simply ask them respectfully about their diagnosis if you’re curious.
