lesson about Nickname




Amanda said ” my whole life I was a minority and I felt like I was picked on

I can’t understand the reasons why Amanda felt like she was picked on?

Because she was a minority??

And i have another question

“I guess you don’t realize how good you have it by being popular”

i don’t know that it is a good or bad thing to have a nickname by being popular

You are correct. Amanda felt like she was picked on because she was a minority. For her, having a negative nickname was just another thing that made her feel badly.

Amanda thinks that because Marni was popular, he nickname did not matter. She thinks that, if you are popular, having a negative nickname isn’t as bad because people will still like you.
