“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of

“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons, and maybe we'll never know most of them.” But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there”. This quote from The 2012 movie, based on the book, ‘The perks of being a wallflower’ is well known by many young people. The movie is about a group of ‘alienated’ teenagers who were social outcasts or as they called themselves "wallflowers", going through many trials. When released, the movie was a massive success. Perhaps the reasons for its success are that it was a different kind of film, a film that influenced respect towards ‘alienated’ teenagers as it gave an insight to the lives of those teens. young people who watched the film found the characters in the film so interesting that they began to want to wear the label of alienation themselves. The above quote is powerful as it acknowledges the struggles of being a labeled young person, although it tells young people that you're label is not you, “we can still choose where we go from here”SOCIAL DIVISIONS IN YOUNG PEOPLES LIFE'S
