 "I Wish I Was You" is a short story about the stereotypes that our society places on us. Most of the descriptions that you will read within the story are from my own personal experiences and background. This story describes the life of two characters who begin to feel lost about their identities and start to wish to be able to live as the opposite gender. As the story continues, you will see how the lives of these two characters change because of the strain that stereotypes have on their lives. 

My aim with this short story was to show the negative effects that stereotypes have, and how we should live in a world where no one would ever doubt themselves because of meaningless stereotypes.
