In went to a really small high school where there was a popular crowd, and a smarty-pants crowd and nothing in between. Ultimately, I was not accepted into either group. The girls in my grade were nasty, they would threaten me over the Internet and at one point turned the whole school against me by making up rumours about me and my family. They also would shove me whenever they got the chance and say hurtful things just to see the light vanish from my eyes. It was like their whole life was devoted to making me miserable. Teachers also sadly would join in thinking it was funny that I was singled out and seemed to promote the bullying. My mom would drive 45 mins to the school every other day to take me out for lunch since no one would want to sit with me. The days my mom did not come, I would hide in the bathroom counting down until break was over and I could sneak back to the classroom. I was very lonely. I had no friends and I did not understand why. Even though my high school experience was horrible, I am thankful that I had those experiences. Being a victim of bullying has made me stronger as a person and has led me to stand up for kids who have not yet learned to stand up from themselves.
