I'm 21 years old now and still suffer from some insecurities from my childhood. I lived in a really small city all through elementary school and middle school and it wasn't easy. The bullying started after September 11, kids would call me names, tell me to go back to my country (even though I was born in Canada and never lived in Morocco - where my parents are from). Even teachers were racist towards me, I was always doing projects by myself and sitting alone at lunch time. I would always come back from school crying and finding stuff to do ALONE since I didn't have friends to call to go play outside with. Imagine not being proud of where your parents are from because of ignorance and violence? Now, I have the best friends in the world, i'm doing so good for myself and the people who used to bully me are actually trying to contact me as if nothing happened. I just want to say to anyone who is going through a rough time in school that it does get better. Trust me when you get to college, whatever you were getting bullied for people will WANT to be friends with you for the same reasons. Hold your head high and always be yourself never change for anyone!
