Wavin’ Flag | Park High School
When I get older, I will be stronger; they’ll call me freedom just like a wavin’ flag.

Please check out the waving flag project my school did! Major props to Mr. Robert Briggs for coordinating it all ♥

If it’s any incentive to watch, I sing a line and do the Napoleon Dynamite Bird wave in it. Hahaha :)


Hey, look at that, someone recorded the whole show. Only reposting because, um, high quality for the win! Oh my god you can hear my voice crack so hard in the last chorus. Sh I never said I was good.

Born This Way, Glee Style

Rachel Piette, Park HS homecoming talent show, 21 September 2011

In high school, it’s so easy to feel left outalone, or ridiculed for who you are. If you ask me, that’s bullshit, but it’s a sad truth in life.

If you can learn to overcome the people that make you feel like nothing, you’ve got the world in your hands.

My name is Rachel Piette. I am pansexual.

I came out to my school singing this song because I don’t want to hide who I am for fear of being ridiculed or teased or bullied. I love myself, and that’s all that matters, at the end of the day.

I didn’t do this performance for me, though.

I did it for the shy kid in the back of your math class who’s too afraid to talk to anyone.

I did it for the big girl who is afraid to eat lunch at school.

I did it for the nerd who is called names and bullied because they ask questions in class.

I did it for the girl who wears too much makeup to feel pretty.

Or the girl who hides the cuts on her arms with long sleeves and bracelets.

I did it for the boy in the locker room who can’t even get dressed for gym because he’s gay and the other guys don’t want to “catch it”.

I did this for all of you. Because if there’s one kid that feels this way at my school, I want them to know it’s okay to be themselves. It’s okay to stand out and be different. There will be people in your life that support you. Could be people you know, could be a complete stranger you pass in the hallways every day. No one should feel like they’re not important.

Because you all matter, you’re all beautiful, no matter what your flaws may be.

Your flaws and differences make you beautiful, baby, so hold that head up and keep walking. <3

If you want to be in the closing act of the Homecoming Talent Show wednesday night, message me back asap (no later than 3:30 pm tomorrow).

Don’t want to dish out all details unless you’re interested, but all that’s needed from you is to make a shirt (shirt and materials provided tomorrow after school) and you get to come up and clap/dance on stage for a little while. Looking for a big “wow” factor, so the more people the better!

p.s. There’s a good chance of a pepfest performance if we can make this big and mind blowing, so keep that in mind :)

Message me here or on facebook :)

That’s like, 4 of my followers, but oh well. Okay, this pertains to you, I swear.

Guess who’s doing a Glee-esque Born This Way performance for the Homecoming Week Talent show? This girl.

Guess who needs help from you? Yep, THIS GIRL.

If you want to be involved, message me and I’ll give you details! (It really just involves making a shirt and festively clapping on stage for about 30 seconds, and it is gonna be really fun :3)

Homecoming royalty will be involved with my performance, but I want more than just the royalty, so I need your guys’ help! And if you have friends, tell them this, too. 

Please please please and thank you!
