Throughout my junior high and high school, I was bullied on almost a daily basis. I thought I fit in, I was on the soccer team and thought I had friends. But there were several girls and guys that would find ways to embarrass me and bully me. I was told I was ugly, called a "butterface", whore, slut, big nose, all terrible words that a young girl really gets affected by. I would go home feeling lost, confused, hurt and lonely. I felt like no one understood how I felt and I was SO embarrassed to admit that I was being bullied and felt that way! Girls were mean and spiteful, taking my books from my locker and throwing my textbooks into the garbage. I graduated high school and even though all those terrible things had happened, I never spoke about them or admitted them. Now, at 24 years old, I am still bullied, except this time on social media. I have been called horse face and that I look like a man from people who have created anonymous pages and commented my pictures. I decided enough is enough. I have ignored the hurtful comments and I know I can move past it, however I know that so many other people are being affected everyday. So I am here to start my bullyproject so that people who feel lost, confused, hurt, and lonely can have inspiration and motivation to cope with the abuse and become confident and happy individuals. I want to motivate people to live a positive life, and to reach out to those in need of help.
