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.

“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!”
