At the start of her senior year in high school, Paige Desorbo was a scared, shy girl who didn’t think she would ever attend a prom. But then she found the right group of people who helped make her prom unforgettable.
In the mid-2000s, the LGBTQ+ community was still in the early stages of coming out, and there weren’t many groups like Prom. Prom is a nonprofit organization that connects young LGBTQ+ people with a supportive community to create a sense of belonging and support during the transition to adulthood.
With the help of Prom, Paige felt more comfortable in her own skin, and she was able to build the courage she needed to attend prom. Today, Paige is a well-adjusted senior who’s been able to thrive in her high school as well as college and beyond.
What is the life expectancy for someone like Paige?
Many people argue that Paige’s life would have been different had she not found Prom. But the truth is, she wouldn’t be who she is today. Paige still has a long way to go in her journey, but she has already learned many valuable lessons and is growing into an even better person.
The life expectancy for someone like Paige is uncertain; there’s no way to know what will happen in the future. But there are many things that can happen, such as graduating from college and going on to work in a fulfilling career. With all of this possibility, there are many ways that someone like Paige can thrive in their life with the help of support groups like Prom.
Paige – from a scared junior to a confident senior
Paige’s experience highlights how important it is for young people to find a place where they can be themselves. The first few years of high school are difficult, and there are many things that can make young people feel like an outsider. That’s why something like Prom is so important. Young people need a community to help build their confidence, which will give them the ability to thrive in their community and in life.
Confidence is key
Paige’s story is an example of how important it is to have confidence in yourself. Despite what others might say, you do not have to follow the path that everyone else does. It’s important to live your life authentically and be able to see yourself as something more than just a person who has been told they are not good enough or deserve to be happy.
Confidence will carry you through all the ups and downs. Along with having a healthy self-esteem, it’s also important to surround yourself with people who love and support you.
Finding the right people
Finding the right people is imperative to making any event unforgettable. Luckily for Paige, she found the perfect group of friends who have helped make her prom unforgettable.
Paige’s group was able to help her feel comfortable in her own skin, and provided opportunities for her to grow and thrive as an individual. The group provided opportunities that led to support, encouragement, and friendship. With their help, Paige has been able to build the courage she needed in order to attend prom.
Getting support from Prom
The most important thing about getting support from an organization like Prom is that you’re not alone. There are other young people going through the same transition, and they’re willing to walk alongside you as you make this next big step in life. Because of the supportive community, Paige felt comfortable being herself and attending her prom.
Another reason why it’s so important to get support from an organization like Prom is because it helps with the self-confidence that comes with transitioning into adulthood. The group helped in building the courage Paige needed to attend her prom, which was a huge step for her at such a crucial time of her life.
Going to college and beyond
College is a huge step in the life of Paige, and her college experience has been pretty amazing. She’s now an activist for LGBTQ+ rights on campus. More importantly, she’s also found that it isn’t just students who need help. Colleges are struggling with their own issues related to LGBTQ+ students and find themselves needing organizations like Prom to help them out.
With so much going on in her life, Paige is currently working on publishing her memoir about coming out as a transgender woman during high school (which is a really hard time). She hopes that by telling her story, other people might be able to find comfort and hope after coming out as well.
Advice for Other High Schoolers
In high school, it’s important to find the right support group. If you want to find a group that will help you feel more comfortable, try joining a student-run club like Prom. It can be difficult to find the right support group in high school–but it’s worth it.
If you’re struggling with high school, remember that these challenging times are a part of life–and don’t feel like you need to handle everything on your own.
