White, female, and scared to speak

Shealyn Chestnut,
Havana, AR

A young, female student at Arkansas State University and I am always scared to open my mouth and voice my opinion. There are so many moments where I fear speaking my opinion because I fear confrontation. I have let things happen to me and I have let others say things about me just to avoid being judged further. I choose not to speak out of fear of offending someone.
