Hi, my name is Nicole. I am currently 22 years old. Since I was in Grade 5, I had people bully me. It didn't matter what I did or what I said, I was a "marked" target. In Grade 6 is when it started getting really bad. People spread rumours that I was into girls (please note I have no issue with people's sexual orientation), and one girl decided to beat me up for the fun of it. I had a teacher witness that the girl attacked me and the principal didn't want to hear it. So he suspended me. It got worse as I got to high school. The ridicule and the games they would play just made me cry desperately inside. I Couldn't take my life anymore so I attempted multiple attempts of suicide. I had random people walk up to me and tell me "I thought you were dead". It continued until I left town in Grade 11 and decided to rebuild my life. I now have moved back to the scene of the crime as you would say and have had multiple people tell me they are sorry for the stuff they did to me. Which to me, is like closer and it takes a lot for a person to apologize to you. I know now that bullying is wrong and I shouldn't have kept it to myself but I'm going to say one thing. As a kid you feel as if you tell your parents, then kids find you more as a target because your an" rat". You need to build a support system of friends to help you with the struggles you face.
