A transgender teenager who committed suicide after being tormented by school bullies left a series of tragic notes asking that she was not remembered as 'the girl with problems'. Ashlyn Haffner, from Indian Trail, North Carolina, died late last month when she stepped in front of a car after slowly beginning to transition to a man. But Ashlyn, also known as Ash, was regularly bullied, which her mother April Quick - referring to her child with the 'she' pronoun - has revealed in a series of heart-breaking notes found written on her child's iPad. The 16-year-old wrote: 'If I die, I don't want to be remembered as the sad person I was,' according to a post on her tribute page. She continued: 'I don't want to be remembered as the f***** gay girl with all the scars on her arm. Unfortunately that's who I am to a lot of people.
