Hi my name is Blake, I am 15 years old. My biggest passion is my dog, Rex – which is why I hang out at the park so much. Most days you can find me at the park throwing the ball for him.
My family and I adopted Rex from the pound when I was 5 years old. In fact, he is the reason I started volunteering at the SPCA. We have a really special bond. I can talk to him about anything especially when I am feeling sad or worried. My family is super close and we spend a lot of time together. I have two older brothers who I actually really like to hang out with, playing soccer and video games.
As I grow older things get tougher and I seem to have more worries than I used to – like the way my body looks and what people think of me. I think I am a little overweight and I have bigger breasts than most of the other girls in my grade. Like so many other girls my age, we get messages about our bodies and this makes me feel self-conscious sometimes. I am really outgoing and have lot of friends. I like to help my friends when they need support especially when they are sad – I just want everyone to be happy.
