I started talking to her and found out that she was really funny and easy to talk to. Then other kids at school started asking me why I'm hanging out with her.
They said she's a little geek, and she dresses like she's from the 80's. I told them that she is actually really funny and maybe if they talked to her, they would know that too.
I told them to get to know people before they start calling them names. Nobody ever knows who the new kid is until they talk to them.
