Hi my name is Mariana Hurtado my bullying started in 8th grade when 20 teenage boys started making fun of my color. Than it went into my freshman year with them calling me Border Hopper, you Dirty Mexican, & we are going to report you to the INS. I reported them to the principles and one of the assistant principle wanted to kick me out because i was lying, my family didn't believe me in any way. It got to the point where i actually had INS come to my house an point taser guns at the age of 15 years old. To that point i was in the verge to hurt myself because i was so unhappy with my life. But no one did anything so I finally decided to stand up for myself, every time they called me names or push me to the ground i would get in there face and try to fight back.
