Hi my name is Danika blair-foreyt I am recently 17 years old first off my "bullying experience" started back when i was in the 5 grade i was the only latina in my whole entire class all the rest were white, these guys behind me asked me one day if i jumped over the border to get to america i had no idea what they were talking about then after i had asked about it i realized they were making fun of my skin color and race, i was upset but to scared to say so then they got worse and worse i finally stood up for myself at the start of 6th grade I have two younger siblings going throught the same thing so i stood up for them too, for awhile there as i grew older like 13 or 15 they put me on a drug for my depressions and what not because of my past, my whole life i was a foster kid along with my two little sisters so i wasnt like anyother kid in my class who all had a mom and a dad i got made fun of for that also i just kept quite from then on out they kept on picking and i kept on choking down pills and i got addicted to them kept taking them when i didnt really need them, i started smoking pot to just forget about my life, i cut to ease the stress i was feeling i hated my body size but when i get stressed i ate like crazy and gained more weight then got upset becuase of the added weight it was a vicious cycle. now i do not do those things anymore as much i take my regular pills when i need them i smoke less and less each day, i am adopted so i have a mom and a family, i have a boyfriend to support me i have at least a group of 10 friends but the picking still goes on i handle it the right way i ask them what point are they trying to prove and make them look like a fool, i stand up for more people when i see it go on at school on the bus even at home with my siblings, i am on no ones sides except for my own now. and for my weight problem i am losing but in a healthy way. I want to make a differ3ence i want bullying to end its just wrong in so many ways nobody needs that type of negativity in their lives.
