We’ve all been that new girl at least once in our lives. It
can be pretty tough to make a bunch of new besties at camp, especially since
you may already be out of your comfort zone. But trust us, chica, you can make a brand-new sisterhood in seconds. Here's how:
Smile—it makes a
great first impression: you’ll look approachable and friendly. People want to
become friends with people who are nice, so show them you’re just that!
Say hi first. You
may think you’re the only one who is nervous about making friends, but we
promise you’re not alone! Someone else is probably feeling exactly the same way,
and they may be too shy to say something first. So, go up, introduce yourself,
and say hey. Who knows, she may end up being your bestie!
Find common ground.
Talk about the activity you’re doing or ask them what they like. Chances are
you’ll like some of the same stuff, too!
Don’t over-think it. If
you’re too busy worrying about making friends, you may miss your chance. So
instead, focus on being the Y-O-U all your other friends totally love. And
remember, you’ve got this, girl!
