I applaud Gabriela Rodriguez because her article “16 and Definitely Not Pregnant” reminds me of myself. She upholds that society is contradictory; “parents want you to be that goody-two-shoes with Ivy League potential, but every teenager … seems to be coaxing you to break your good-girl habits.” I understand what it feels like to try to be a perfect daughter; it feels like everything you do is never good enough.

It’s nice to know that there are others who feel the way I do. I’m not missing out on anything by not partying or “turning up.” I know what I want in life, and I’m not going to achieve it by doing those things. Thank you, Gabriela, for sharing your experiences.
