Call Me Crazy

What does it mean to be unique? What does it mean to stand out? Tyler McGackin, a student at Parsons: The New School for Design and part-time clown on the weekends, gave us a snapshot of her one of a kind life, and what it truly means to be unique.

Jean Tyler, student, part-time clown, part-time photographer, and NYC socialite tells us why she is unique.

“I have never felt accepted in my entire life. People would always call me crazy and it really offended me. I kind of got over it when I moved here (to NY). I was the outcast of my family.

Then I thought, if I’m already the outcast and people already think I’m crazy, I might as well rock it. I think that’s why people think I’m unique, because I had to learn not to care. If I did care, I would be depressed.

So, to stand out, I think you just have to be a positive energy to people. If you want to stand out or be unique, you just have to be a good person. Me? I genuinely love everybody in my life, so I guess I stand out!”
