I'm 21 years old, but my voice sounds like a small child's voice. I suffer a lot. Everyone insults me. I want to change my voice like a normal girl voice. What can I do?

I would recommend an evaluation by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician to rule out the possibility that something structural/ functional is contributing to your symptoms. In the absence of anatomic or physiologic abnormality, abnormally high pitch in young men or women is often referred to a "puberphonia," and can be treated in voice therapy with a speech pathologist who specializes in the treatment of voice disorders.
Best of luck to you.
