Growing up for me was hard. Especially in a world where everyone around you seemed like their only purpose was to discourage you from doing anything that made you happy. I started playing basketball as a very young child. I had to teach myself and learn from the people around me, because my family couldn't afford to pay for lessons, or camps in the summer. I continued playing, but when I hit junior high, that's when people started talking about me. I had tried out for the schools basketball team, and by the grace of God made it in. As time passed people started talking. "She can't play basketball." "She's too skinny" "What's up scrawny?" "Hey, loser!! Come "play" us". Eventually it got bad. Nobody seemed to believe in me. At all. Not even my own parents, and when you have that many people against you, you start to be against yourself. Gradually I would skip practice and barley play anymore. About the time I was at the edge of giving up in everything, that's when I heard Machine Gun Kelly for the first time. I started listening to him more and more as time went on. I had mentioned him to a few people and they said "I don't get his music at all", but the funny thing is...I did. They just came to me, it was like he's lived in my
my shoes, and I've lived in his. He made me want to continue doing what I loved, and I did. A couple of months later continuing my passion harder then ever, I got a letter in the mail. It was a scholarship to a university for my outstanding performances in the game. I would of never got that if it wasn't for MGK.
