I am a female conservative freshman at Urban. I am pro-life, anti extra gun laws, I believe that illegal immigration is wrong (it is illegal for gods sake), and I support Trump. I am not a bad person, I actually believe that I am a kind and caring person
Having an adverse opinion can be scary and challenging, especially when you are entering a new space (Urban) with views that clash against yours. It is very valid to feel alone and terrified. It is important to remember that there are others like you who may be feeling equally terrified. They may be waiting for another person to speak up so they feel comfortable to voice their opinion. If you feel comfortable, you can be the voice to speak out. Start with small groups of people - maybe your advising, your friend group, or confide in a teacher. I know history and English classes can be particularly challenging, and confiding in your teacher may help. Also, if your friends are your true friends, they will support you. If they are not supportive and understanding, you may want to find company who is receptive to different viewpoints.
