My name is Kristen. I am 14. I had no problems with bullying in my old school. When I came to Homer Schools in 3rd grade I was immediately outcasted by the others because I was the same as them. I was shy, quiet, and I wore darker clothes than they did. I thought that when I switched to middle school because they have a different principal. I was wrong. When I started to fully open up how I wanted to be and wanted to dress, in 5th grade, the bullying got worse. People pushed me in the halls, called me names such as emo, goth girl, dyke, cunt, bitch, and many more. They would say I'm fat, anorexic, a whore, crazy, suicidal, mental, and a dog. I told the principal. I came biome crying almost everyday. In 8th grade I went home from school with tears rushing down my face everyday for 3 weeks. It got so bad that I couldn't even concentrate on my work. I gave my principal the names of the people and he didn't do anything. He didn't talk to them. He didn't even call their parents. I barely passed the 8th grade because of them. Because they wouldn't leave me alone long enough for me to learn it properly. I'm going into 9th grade now. High school. The most important years of my education. The time I need I focus most on. My fear going I to high school is not that it will be hard. My fear is that the bullying still won't stop. My fear is that this principal will be like the rest. My fear is that if it doesn't stop and I have I go into the all too familiar office, he won't do anything. I wish I could say I'm looking forward to high school like everyone else but I can't. I had no one to stand up for me In elementary and middle school. Make sure others do have someone to stand up for them and remember, never give in never back down.
