How to make friends when your the new girl and cliques are already formed?

I just moved to the states from overseas, and I'm the new girl at my high school. I've been trying to meet friends but I haven't yet. it's been so hard and it's really bringing me down. my school is very cliquey, and no one really talks to me. If I talk to someone they just brush me off. this has really gotten to me and I just feel like crying, I'm not adapting well and I miss all my old friends. I don't feel like a person, I feel like a number. I don't even know who I am anymore. I don't feel like myself.

Don't be down too much. Just smile. Smile attracts people. It gets people jealous of you too. Just be your own beautiful self. Someone will see you. You look really beautiful and I KNOW, I KNOW that you'll have friends soon. Just don't push it too hard and be accommodating, be polite. Don't be rude like them. You are way better than that.

Good luck and always smile, beautiful :)

Well, if someone is alone at a lunch table I go up to them and start a conversation.

Don't be in a hurry, check them out first and see who you might like to know better. Be comfortable by yourself define who you are and want to be. friends don't define you. Popularity doesn't make you any better or worse. Always say hi to people you've encountered a time or two before. others like to be noticed. Just walk by someone you think is nice a give a light compliment on something then move on. After that a hello here and there, then a question here and there. It takes time and you have time. Rushing it could mean even more disappointment. Be happy with yourself keep busy, join clubs at school. It will happen, people like talking about themselves and the person who can get someone to do that plants the seeds of friendship.

Find a common interest. You enjoy making films, so maybe you can find people who like acting? ;)
