I’m much older than you are, but I know just how you feel. It’s very hard to make friends, especially if you’re shy as I am. Even in church, it can be hard sometimes to make friends. But don’t give up. God will lead you to others who share your goals and dreams. Keep sharing of yourself, and not only will he lead you to others like you, but he will use you to encourage them. Praying for you, Lanell.
