On some recent weekends, I wandered around the Santa Monica Pier asking people what they were afraid of. Even as they described their biggest fears, many of the awesome girls I met laughed and posed for my camera. Here’s what they shared with me.
Sabrina, 14: Bodies of water. I don’t swim.
Marina, 13: Being in front of large crowds.
Tiana, 14: Insects.
Emma, 18: Losing people I love.
Yilinn, 13: Death.
Quifei, 14: Not knowing how I will die.
Roslyn, 15: Regret.
Lisbeth, 14: Clowns.
Karina, 9: High places.
Megan, 16: Not being satisfied.
Miranda (far left), 14: Failure.
Tatiana (center), 17: The future, and going to college.
Jessica, 18: Dying.
Alexa, 14: Facing the world alone.
Jay, 20: Bugs!
Melissa (right), 16: Death. I’m scared that I will randomly die one day and not fulfill my purpose in life.
Jennifer, 17: Not ending up happy with myself. It doesn’t matter where I end up, as long as I’m happy. ♦
