The Girl With Music In Her Heart

Here’s a sweet letter I got from a girl named Tiffany, who sent this in quite some time ago. I’m glad you’ve gained the confidence to make new friends and be yourself!

Tiffany's OCI go by many names– some good and some bad. I am different and I never really accepted that growing up. I was born with a crooked leg, so I wore a leg brace for a year. I got made fun of for it a lot, and never really had many friends. The constant bullying from classmates and siblings made my heart ache. It made my heart ache so much that I mostly kept to myself, and kept quiet for years. I felt like an outcast, I put myself down, I believed that every bad thing a person has said to me was true.

Then, one day, I found MLP:FiM, and I thought it was cool. I had no clue about the fandom until the summer of 2012. When I found the fandom I felt happier, but I feel like I started to heal when I first heard your song. It got me thinking that it’s okay to be different, and I should be proud of myself; I’m not a freak or an outcast. After I first heard the song “Great to be Different”, I changed things in my life. I’m a junior in high school so you would think I had friends, but I didn’t have many. After I heard the song, I walked up to a group of kids and asked to sit by them. They said yes, and I have been sitting by them ever since. I even told them I’m a brony and showed them pictures I drew.

I now really accept myself for who I am and I’m proud of it. Music was something I loved, growing up from elementary school to now in high school. I love to sing and write songs, and I would have never guessed that a song would change my life and heal my heart. So for that, I thank you.

From Tiffany, the girl with music in her heart.
