Hello my name is Sarah I am 20 years old. I was bullied from the time I started school to the time I quit. I switched schools a lot so at first it was the new kid in school stuff. in elementary school kids would tell me to go back to mexico where you belong (though im not mexican). the kids would push me and call me names, they told me I was stupid and I didn't belong there. then I gained a little weight I was all of 70 pounds going into middle school and I was told I was fat and ugly. I fought to stay home from school everyday I thought nobody cares especially if they send me to deal with this everyday. so it went on when I got into middle school I had very little friends all of which were outcasts and got picked on too. I remember it like it was yesterday because some boys thought it would be funny to write a letter to the principal saying I said inappropriate things to them. I spent 5 days in alternative school. when I got to go back to regular school one of the boys confronted me in the hall he hit me in the mouth busted my lip and laughed. every time I told a teacher or principal they would say what did you do or they would say they would take care of it and did absolutely nothing. I attempted suicide 8 times that year. in high school it got a little easier but I still had my problems but I changed the way I felt about things I stopped caring about what everyone else thought of me. I think my experience made me a stronger person today and im proud of who I am. next time you think nobody cares think twice because there are people who have been in your situation and they care.
