Like many students, I was bullied when I was younger from about the 3rd to early 4th and 7th grade. I was very new to this country and the cultures of the people in my town and school, I didn't really understand much of why I was being picked on because it was something that I was use to. I would tell my teachers about the situations but of course I would called a "tattle teller" and the ways that the school system would dealt with it at the time were very vague, either separating you from the other children or having a "sit-down" but never really an serious consequences at the time. Thankfully I began to gain a sense of who I was, the resources around me to prevent things, and also for my parents that were constantly supportive.
IF THERE IS ANYONE OUT THERE BEING BULLIED PLEASE REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND THERE ARE WAYS TO CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BETTER. COMMUNICATION IS KEY, IF YOU DON'T SPEAK UP NO ONE WILL EVER HEAR YOUR VOICE.
