Through out my school career I have had several issues with bullying, but it was not until my senior of high school that I dealt with it the worst. I was on the cheerleading team and half way through our season some of the girls on my team turned their back on me. They started calling me unspeakable names and constantly talking about me to other teammates. Over several weeks, the situation continued to get worse. I let my coach know and it still did not stop. Next, we informed my athletic director and still it got worse. Eventually, it got to the point where texts from these girls were being sent to my phone and a Facebook video was posted about me. Finally, I refused to go to school and my parents went in and spoke with administrators. The bullies were brought in and spoken to as well as their parents. For the reminder of my year everything went smoothly, but there was never any resolution. I can honestly say this experience has had a long lasting effect on me and because of that I want to do everything within my power to make a change to this pressing social issue.
