Humans of Westwood: Mason Fruge ’21

“For years and years I was notoriously known as ‘That Annoying Kid.’ I talked a lot, a little too much, everybody hated it, then one day I decided I wasn’t going to talk so much. I would try to be more calm so more people would like me because I felt lonely. But whenever I stopped that personality trait of mine it made my friends upset because, I had changed myself in a way they did not approve and I was not the same kind of person. That taught me a valuable lesson; that as long as the people that matter to you enjoy the person that you are, you don’t have to change a single thing about yourself.” Mason Fruge ‘21
