However, people need to understand that it ain't that deep to try and convince people of what your persona is. You are who you are, and what you are will show in time.

When I was nine, the teacher asked us to write a piece about our village fete. He read mine in class. I was encouraged and continued. I even wanted to write my memoirs at the age of ten. At twelve I wrote poetry, mostly about friendship - 'Ode to Friendship.' Then my class wanted to make a film, and one little boy suggested that I write the script. Eugene Ionesco
