Humans of HKIS: Kate & Ritikaa

Ritikaa: My whole entire—everything I did—was depending on what other people would think about me.

Kate: All of freshman year, I was so worried about what everyone else thought of me. I didn’t allow myself to have fun anymore.

Now that you’ve learned to accept yourself, how’s life going?

Ritikaa: I love myself!

Kate: No, it’s so much better, like as soon as you stop worrying about what everyone else thinks, it’s a weight lifted off your shoulders and I feel like I can run around this school and people would judge me so hard, but whatever. That’s their problem if they’re judging.

Kate & Ritikaa, Class of 2022
