My name is Emily Romig and I'm currently 15 years old. I was born and raised in PA, with my mother. My entire life, beginning in 2nd grade I have been bullied and harassed. I sat here an watched the movie "Bully", not even half an hour ago and noticed that kids all around the world have problems with this. From 2nd to 5th grade the bullying wasn't to bad, just some name calling and pushing. Later on it wasn't as nice. The kids in the Middle School would call me a whore, a bi*ch, a ska*k, and so on. It was horrible. I began to self harm, and having thoughts of suicide. 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I couldn't take it. Finally in 9th grade, we all combined into the High School. There, my two best friends made a video about me, acting like I was pregnant, like I wasn't important, showing that I cut. They sent it to all students and staff of the school and even posted it on YouTube. I couldn't take it. My best friend later then accused me of threating her, I can't even explain everything that has happened to me. But I'm in 10th grade now, and cyber schooled. I'm noticing that the bully's of my past are getting what they deserve, and that although I had it rough, and still do, I can get over it and become STRONG. I want to do whatever I can to stop bullying, because my school did nothing to stop it, and they're not doing anything now either, even when I'm out of there and the bullying is getting worse. I'm STANDING STRONG. <3
