The Coolest Girl
Hirst’s page has received nearly six hundred Facebook page likes.
Eve tells The Mirror, “I need a way to express my feelings. So, I go into my bedroom and turn myself into a character to release all the upset. I love becoming someone else because I don’t have to deal with my everyday problems because when I’ve applied the makeup, I’m no longer me.”
Eve’s mother told the Mirror that, “They would leave her in tears and terrified every day. They constantly called her wicked names. She would get off the school bus and run to her Gran’s house as they would start on her in the street too.”
“I love becoming someone else because I don’t have to deal with my everyday problems because when I’ve applied the makeup, I’m no longer me,” she told Elite Daily.
“And the person I become isn’t being bullied or taunted, instead she is happy and having fun.” She continued.
