Question new school

so i'm going to a new school (i'll be a junior in high school)this year and i really want to start wearing shorts and dresses and stuff. but i'm soooo self concious of my PWS. it's all over the outside of my right leg. it's not verry dark but still obvious. i think i'd feel more comfortable wearing shorts in front of people that i'm meeting for the first time, just to be able to get the stress of telling them about my birthmark out of the way quickly.

so what do you guys think? any tips or advice about showing people your PWS? any tips on making friends in a new school? i need all the help i can get >.<'
