I'm a 28 year old college graduate from Ottawa, CANADA. Still have a few more tests and interviews before I become a police officer. I come from a small town in Northern Ontario. Everybody knows everybody and I absolutely hate that place. I was bullied from grade school up until I left for college. Things were rough for me growing up, I was the chubby girl who stuttered. But even if I was constantly laughed at I knew I wouldn't always be like that. I was in grade 1 when I decided to take speech therapy. Took me 10 years to re-learn how to talk. I also had a dietician help me out with my weight issues. But through all that hard work I also had to deal with constant laughing at, telling me to go kill myself, people stealing my clothes and making me walk in -40 weather with no winter jacket. Everything you could possibily think of, they've done it to me. I have the worst memories of my high school years. I wouldn't go back, NEVER. But one thing I've learn through this is to stand tall and don't ever give up. Things do get better and trust me I wouldn't be able to handle life's challenges if I didn't went through all that crap as a kid. I face my problems head on, I always find a way to fix things. That's what being bullied thought me. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel. To all kids and parents of kids who are correctly being bullied; I will always stand up to bullying and be heard. Much love, Sophie xox
