It all started in 10th grade, never really thought anything would ever happen to me. There was a group of four girls, we were the best of friends, we did everything together and thought we would be friends forever, little did I know that soon I was going to be at the bottom of everything. I went away for 2 weeks over the summer with a group of other students, had the time of my life!!! Coming home to what I came home to, made me want to move back. Of course when I get home I messaged my closes friends hoping to get together sense I have not seen them in forever. No reply back, was worried but again didnt think much of it. The next day my phone and facebook got blown up from those girls with hate message and threatening to hurt me and my family. I deleted them thinking it would stop. It didn't. Went on all summer long and into the school year, finally I thought it would be best to tell the school. All they said was there is nothing we can really do, we can talk to the girls and hope that it will stop. Well let me tell you, it didn't. It got worse!!!! Rumors started going around the school and I had people I never even knew in high school messaging me, asking if it was true, calling me names, attacking my family. Thats when my depression got worse. I wanted to kill myself to take the pain away, thinking that was my only way out. I took it to a high administrator in my school, he didnt do anything but recommended me to a group started at a different school near by called Power of 100. Some teacher and some other students and I headed up to the summit to learn more about it. So many powerful things happening that day, that I knew that going to the school was not helping my situation, so I had to be the one to standup not only for me but for others whos voices are not heard. I stared the group at my school, thinking it would take off, but it didn't. Now being a senior at my school, I have not given up on trying, more students joined the group and even got teacher on board. I have never been more proud of myself and the other students who see there is a problem and want to stand up. I hope everyone has something like this at there school. For them to know they are not alone and they do have a voice and they will have people standing behind them no matter what.
Took matter into my own hands.
