I am sure that you have heard the expression - Alpha Male before, but I am glad to say there is also an equivalent to that : The Alpha Female. I like to think that I am in this category. It is not easy to carry on in this exclusive (but growing) niche. People either think you are mean or just plain Cruella. I don't mind the stereotyping though. An Alpha Male is usually associated with power and authority, however when it is used about a female, the connotation is often quite on the other side of the spectrum.
But fear not, be yourself, let others think whatever they want to think and carry on. Do it with self confidence, assertiveness, work hard, and utilize your intelligence to be more than just a witch. If you are anything like me, you will chase down your dreams and stay close to your true friends. When someone is hating on you, take that as a compliment, it just means they are intimidated by you or they don't know you at all. Don't feel the need to apologize to anyone who doesn't realize the talent or work ethic that you possess.
