When I was just 20 months old, I suffered serious 13 after a bowl full of hot oil fell on my head. I was 14 to hospital and had to say there for weeks while the doctors 15 to save my life. "Holly's very 16 to be alive," they told Mum and Dad. "But she'll be 17 with scars on her head, and of course her hair won't grow there."
As a child, I cared much about my scars, so I 18 wore a scarf to cover them up when I left home. 19 I didn't, people would call me horrible names like Baldy. Although my friends were always comforting me ,they never 20 understood how it felt.

But she is so 23 that she never lets anyone put her down. "You shouldn't 24 what people say about what you look like because we're not different from anyone else, Holly," she 25 me. "And you don't need to wear a scarf because y0ou look great 26 it!" For the first time in my life I could speak to someone who'd been through something 27 .

Now, I am 30 of what I look like and much happier, because I have realized it is your personality（个性）that decides who you truly are.
