Never Me Nessy Sobey, '25 Most days I don’t feel pretty. Until that one day comes along— I don’t see my insecurities big forehead, chubby cheeks, wide ribcage, stomach fat. I finally convince myself that I’m pretty; Until I open my phone to capture this moment I see the most beautiful girls who are my age, even though they don’t look anything like a 14 year old Why do these girls get to be pretty and not me? I see them everywhere Boys attention only goes to them, Everybody likes them They get everything. People say pretty privilege isn’t a thing But I witness it every day of my life. Now I know why I never feel pretty. I never get attention from people I’m invisible to the teenage boy eye. They would never look at me like they look at them. Now I know why I never feel pretty. What I would do to be one of those girls.
