Markowitz expresses desire for acceptance of individuality

Quinn Ferguson, Ranger Review Reporter

Jack Markowitz 9 aspires to be true to himself and his experiences. He vouches that everybody should be accepting of everybody’s choices.

“I don’t want to be the person that I am not truly. I want to travel the world when I’m older. I’m just fascinated by different cultures, different languages, and everything in between. That passion for travel started young when I went to Tanzania. I will never forget that or my passion to travel; it is who I am. I am being true to myself and what I want to do, that includes my style. I think people should just learn that everybody has their own personality, including me, and it’s each person’s job to accept and be respectful of everyone’s unique individuality. People don’t have to agree with everything you do. They don’t have to adapt to it, but just accept it and be overall accepting of others. I think I have learned that it’s not my fault if they don’t like it. I like who I am. And I think it’s most important to agree with who you are. If you ever realize that you are acting like someone you’re not, you need to reassess who you are and who you want to be in the future.”
