If You're Hating On Kendall Jenner For Her Proactive Announcement, Just Stop

Ya'll will really get mad over everything won't you?


As I am sure that you all know by now, there was a controversy surrounding the uber famous model Kendall Jenner. Some people are upset that Kendall and her mom, Kris Jenner, were teasing them with an announcement in which Kendall comes out with something that is super personal.

People suspected that she may be coming out or that she was going to admit to having an eating disorder.

They were very disappointed though, when she revealed that she was just the new spokesperson for Proactive. She released a video in which she discusses her struggle with acne over the years and how Proactive helped her get raid of it.

Thus an Internet debate got fueled because they found footage of Kylie saying that their dermatologist used laser to make Kendall's acne go away, which discredits her saying that it was Proactive.

Honestly, she could have used both Proactive and lasers but whatever helped her cure it, I think that people overreacted to the situation.

Kris said in a Tweet that she was "so proud" of her daughter for her bravery at sharing her story.

Some people were really annoyed by this, but as someone who has suffered from acne since middle school, I think that she has every right to be proud of her.

I wrote an article last year in which I discussed my acne struggles and my coming to terms with it and it was not easy to make myself so vulnerable on the Internet, which can become such a nasty platform sometimes.

I think that it was brave of Kendall to share her story.

I am not interested in the logistics of it and as to whether or not Proactive was what really cured it.

However, I am interested in how she admitted to how much it ruined her self-confidence and how it made social situations uncomfortable for her.

This is because this is something that I can relate to.

I can relate to the feeling of not liking how I look in pictures and not wanting people to talk to me because I didn't want them to see my face.

I can imagine that it was especially hard for her since she is such a public profile and there are quite literally thousands of people out there judging her.

No one should let acne stop them from doing things but it can be crippling to people's self esteem.

As an adult who still struggles with acne I believe Kendall was strong for sharing her story because I personally know how hard it was for me to do so.

I do however, believe that she maybe should have worded her promos for it differently, but no one is perfect.

Whether her motives for being the spokesperson for Proactive are money driven or if she genuinely wants to help people who are going through what she has gone through, I think that anyone who has suffered from real sever acne should at least see the point of view that Kendall is coming from.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
