I sometimes feel the same way. mostly when you get a test back and everyone's like, let me guess you got a 100 when i really didn't. i want to be smart just not geeky. i know i'm not geeky and i'm just as fun as everyone else.

I know how you feel girl! I hate it. It's deffinately okay to be smart. In fact, I'm sure you know, being smart gets you really far in life. Tell them "I dont' know everything" or maybe you can try ignoring them when you feel like they're about to ask you about the answer to a question.

That's exactly how I am! I'm supposed to be the quiet, shy, super smart girl and sometimes I feel like they expect too much out of me. But I started raising my hand more often and now I raise my hand like everytime and it helped a lot!
First, it's really awkward cause ur not used to it, but it'll be more comfortable later on. U'll have way more confidence if u do.
