    “Character is what you know you are, not what others think you are.” (Marva Collins) I think this is a very true quote because lately all around the world kids have been getting bullied or picked on. So kids really need to know this because they are being brought down every single day for how they look or speak, so when I see this I just remember that all kids should see this and know it doesn’t matter what other people think as long as they are confident.

    Why I like this quote is because it truthful fact, what I mean is that it’s true people don’t know who you are, only you know who you are.Another reason why I like the quote is because it explains a lot about what other people people can think of you, like they might think you are a complete nerd but actually you can be a really good gamer.
