My name is Courtney. I am 16. I am no longer in school, but I do have a story to tell. I've always been different, even when I was little. In the way I dressed, my looks, & my personality. I was always an outsider in school, very timid. Ever since middle school, I've been teased and bullied to the point of suicide. It started in 6th grade. Guys & girls called me fat, ugly, would laugh at everything I do. When I got into 9th grade, the violence started. Girls & guys would hit me, slap me, push me down stairs, attack me in the hallways & sometimes record it. They'd throw food at me & trip me in the hallways. At the end of 9th grade, I got Into a Christian school. There was no violence, just teasing. But I'm still myself today, I dress the way I want, & look the way I want. Because I refuse to let people change me. Be yourself, never let anyone tell you your less than perfect.
