When I witness someone being bullied I always jump in and stick up for the person that is being bullied, no matter what the circumstances are, no one deserves to be bullied. I get bullied because I am Jewish. Many people like to make jokes about my religion and when I was younger I would get bullied because of my weight and height. I was known as the ‘short fat girl’ in the fifth and sixth grade. When I was younger I had no one to turn to, no one would stick up for me, they would all laugh and point. I never wanted to go to school. Those two years of my life were just the beginning. It didn’t stop there it continued to junior high and then into high school when I found out I was Jewish. Once I got to high school I made friends that helped me and they are still there to this day to help me whenever they pick on me. People can stand up for one another. I am not proud of what I use to do, because I know that it can become very dangerous, I believe that no one should ever self harm, its a very bad thing to do. I quit self harming, because I made a promise not only to myself but to some very close people that I would never do that and if it got bad that I would talk to someone about it instead. I believe that every school should hold a seminar about bullying. I believe everyone should have to watch the movie, The Bully Project. I believe that a bully should have to go through the same thing that happens to the person that they bully.
