I would have never thought I would be one to be bullied. All my life until now in high school, I have been known as a fairly "popular" student. Of course for all the right reasons. The fact that in elementary school and middle I was bullied for being too skinny or too black haunted me. It made me hate my appearance and it made me feel as if I wasn't anything. At school, with friends, and family, I'd smile and put on a mask of happiness, but deep down I wasn't happy with myself. Plenty of times, in middle school, I have tried to commit suicide by drug overdose on over the counter pills, but my God did not let me go. I think it is in his will and is my destiny to begin sharing this story and teach other young ladies their true worth and how to be a young lady. After watching the special on CNN, I truly want to make a difference. I loved Lee's story. I am truly thankful for this outlet for people to open up about their experiences and gain closure. This is truly a blessing from God himself. Thank You.
