Storyboard Text

  • Hi, my name's Katie, and recently, my parents decided to uproot our family in humble Iowa and move to big-city LA. Obviously, I'm not too thrilled by the idea. 
  • Why did we have to move? I liked Iowa.. And I don't know anyone here in LA. They probably won't like me. 
  • Mom, I'm scared for school tomorrow. What if they make fun of my accent?
  • My mom tried to comfort me, but I was still scared. Middle school can be rough. 
  • Aww, honey, don't worry about them! 
  • My first day of school turned out to be worse than I imagined. 
  • Hey, I'm the new girl in your math class. Can I eat lunch with you guys?
  • Uh, no. You say you're from Iowa? Ha! Bet you don't even have a phone. 
  • They laughed at me! They were mean! I don't want to go to school! I'll never fit in if I don't have what they have, like cool clothes and fancy phones. 
  • Truth was, I didn't have a phone. But, after Mom's deal, I felt a little better about going to school. 
  • Aww, sweetie, it's ok. Tell you what, for being so great about moving, Dad and I will get you a phone. And, we can go shopping on Saturday. How's that?
  • The next week, I asked if I could hang out with the other girls. They said yes! 
  • Hey, I'm Katie. Can I sit with you guys?
  • Yeah sure! Cute outfit, by the way. Very trendy. 
  • And a cool phone! Is that the new one?
  • Now I fit in. I got new clothes, a new phone, and started to visit a speech therapist to get rid of my accent. Although I'll never be the same, I know that I'll be accepted here in LA.
