When I started the 7th grade I was excited because I could try out for the basketball team, and my brothers were excited for me as well, they wanted me to show off my moves that they have been teaching me. Well I made the team that year and I thought that this was going to be an awesome year, but after the first game everything went downhill from there, I don't know why, I was the leading score but I never bragged about It, but the boys basketball team did. My teammates started talking about be making up roomers like how I was poor, and I don't take shower because I stink after a game. It didn’t just stop at the team, it escalated to the whole 7th and 8th grade classes, majority talked about me and the rest sat back and just listened and made faces but didn’t say anything, including sisters but I guess I was wrong. It had gotten to the point to were my brothers joined In saying that my two oldest brothers. I thought brothers were supposed to protect their little I stink as well at home and calling me ugly, they once told me that when we are at school that were not related. I wrote an "What If?" letter, It said "What If I died would my classmates care, would my family even care?" and "What If I stand up for myself will I get beat down emotionally and physically?" I was hurt and yes I did want die or disappear but then I thought to myself I have something to live for and Its not to please my classmates nor to fit In. and In high school I was never bullied, not once I continued my basketball career as well as my softball as soccer and Tennis career. I’ve made a lot of friends who I Love so dearly and I physical lost three which hurt soo bad, I’ve forgiven the ones who hurt me In Middle school and haven’t held a grudge against them since. Today I’m in college and I’m in training for the 2016 Olympics for Tennis, I’m still living for what I was put on this earth to do, Help people.
