This is the story of the time I meet the man who inspired me to be
myself. I was in 8th grade and it was my second
concert I ever attended and I wasn’t expecting to meet him. I just went
to have good time and see him and jayy live. A few minutes into the
second opening bands set I get a call from my dad saying he had seen Dahvie walking in. I instantly lit up with excitement and ran over there. When I got there, he was standing right there. I got so
nervous because it was my first time I met anyone that I admired. My dad
literally had to shove me forward just to talk to him. Then he saw me and
said hi, asked how I was and I sat in complete silent shock that this
was even happening right now. I got my picture, gave him the bracelet I
made him. He said he loved it, signed my shirt, and I gave him one last hug. He kissed me on the forehead and said I love you so much.
They have truly taught me
just not to care what anybody thinks, say whatever you want, like
whatever you want to like, and do your thing. This has stuck with me all
along and it has helped me grow as a person. No matter what people
think of him, him and jayy will always have a place in my heart as the
first people who taught me how to just be me.
