How to Be Confident on Your First Day of a New School (for Preteens)
DON'T dress to impress.Now, this isn't a written invitation to go to school in your pajamas and leave your hair unbrushed/combed, but don't feel as if you should change your look to impress fellow classmates. Wear what you are comfortable in and styles that you personally like, as long as it adheres to your school's clothes policies and is neat.
Be clean.Again, this doesn't mean smear your face with pounds of makeup. It just means that you shouldn't look dirty. Wash your face, brush or comb your hair, have neat hands and nails, and clean teeth. Makeup is not restricted for the preteen age, but I would personally suggest that if you want to wear makeup, go for a natural look, with colors close to your skin tone. Make SURE not to wear a lot of eye makeup, it just looks like you're trying too hard to be pretty. A clear gloss, concealer if you have acne, and maybe some mascara on your upper lash line is sufficient.
Be confident.If you are naturally shy, work on your smile, and things you can say to people. If you are allowed to talk to people before school starts, instead of being the one who people whisper about, saying things such as, "Look at that new girl over there all by herself," suck up your nerves and walk over to a girl who looks friendly (trust me you will want to start off with a girl) and say, "Hi, my name is _________. I like your _______" (shirt, bracelet, etc.) If she really is a nice girl, then she will probably begin to talk to you, or (hopefully) introduce you to some other people in your class. If she is not so nice, don't lose hope, just try it again with another girl.
If you have a friend that you know at the school, don't ignore her or anything, but don't cling to her, as it can 1.irritate your friend and 2. make you seem very shy. Try to talk to a variety of girls, and, if you begin to feel comfortable with it, talk to some guys as well.
If you think you have a crush on a guy, don't do anything about it.You really need to find out more about his personality. And also, if you do slip something about liking him, it could end up getting to him, and if he doesn't like you, you don't want to get humiliated on the first day!
Although a bit odd, you need to discreetly find out about 5 types of people:1. blabber-mouths/gossipers, 2. nice girls who could potentially be a friend, 3. girls who are not so nice to you, so you know to try to steer clear of them when needed, 4. nice guys who could be potential friends, and 5. guys who are not so nice so that you can stay out of their way.
Talk to people.If there is a tense/awkward moment, don't let it drag on. Say something funny and witty to break the ice.
Be nice to everyone, don't become known as the new mean girl.Defend yourself if need be, but do it in the quietest and nicest way possible. The more friends you have, the more support and trust you will gain.
Do not criticize or talk about people behind their back.Whatever you do will have consequences, whether they are good or bad.

- Don't try to be cool. People know someone who is faking over a truly friendly person.
- If there are, per se, 'nerds' or 'weirdos', be nice to them. A lot of people tend to call people a nerd or accuse them of being weird because they don't have the same interests as someone else may have.
- Be yourself. No one likes a poser. If someone doesn't like you for being who you are, that's their loss.
- The truly popular people have no idea that they are popular; people just automatically like them because of their unique and kind personality.
