My name is Hailey Niemela. I am 17 Years old. My mom is a recovering meth addict, my dad sexually assaulted me for Four years of my life. I have always had problems making friends and was picked on alot. Until the 7th grade then i became very popular and started to date. My freshmen year I became pregnant and my mom relapsed so i moved to my grandparents house. Going back to my early childhood school was horrifying, every day i was called names, judged and had rumors about me. I finally went to the alternative school. I still get dirty looks and rude comments under peoples breath while in public with my son. I am apart a teen theater troupe that helps raise awareness about bullying and we help break oppression. I wanted to share my story because I thing young women need someone to look up to and need someone to give them advice. I also want everyone to know that they are not alone!! I HAVE BEEN WHERE YOU ARE, AND IF I HAVEN'T THEN I WILL BE SOONER OR LATER!!I have had the suicidal thoughts, the depression, the loneliness. you aren't alone!!
