Who Do You Want To Be?

That's the most common question that teens talk about these days. It's necessary that we discover ourselves at the youngest age because that will certainly say what we will become in the near future. It's a long way to truly know who you are and who you want to be. Nearly none of us are prepared to walk that path all alone, so we usually ask for help.

The age, clothing, music and culture are decisive matters to determine what kind of person you will be and what kind of tribe you will adept. All Countries have ways of expressing their culture, and so their citizens. Teens ate the age of 12 begun to join groups that have that goal. The most common ones here in Brasilia are trendy, goths, emos and geeks.

The first group likes to be always fashionable and prepared to whatever may happen: storm, sun and especially parties. They like designed and expensive clothes, fancy cars, boyfriends/girlfriends, they usually are the most famous at school, and have a lot of difficulties because since their parent are absent and have a lot of money to afford them in the future they don’t seem to care a lot with school.
The second one is usually mistaken with the third. Goths are people who love to wear black clothes and dark make-up. Usually don’t care what people will think about them because they usually have strong personality, and don’t need outsider’s influence. They are very calm, intelligent, like heavy metal music and melodic ones and they usually smoke in the backyard of school in groups.
Emos are the new and most incomprehensible tribe. They don’t know what they want for life and always think that they are misunderstood. They are always sad or depressed, crying with their friends or extremely happy in other moments. They use bangs, dark make-up too but usually with a drop drawn on their cheeks and striped clothes to complete the visual.
Geeks are the one who wear glasses, are addicted with everything related to computer and have weird ways of walking, talking and sitting because mostly of them are very shy. Unfortunately some of them are bullied at school from trendies because of their shyness and right way of doing things.

No matter who you are or what kind of group you belong. It’s important to know that we have to respect each other because we are a society. We work in groups. Without respect, we have no chance of conquering our place in the world, at school and even at your workplace.
