I recently wrote, produced and filmed a short PSA on the subject of bullying. I feel strongly aginst bullying and hope that maybe by putting my PSA onto your website some teenagers may be discouraged from engaging in this abhorrent activity.

I Promise

"My little sister has Tourette's syndrome. I'm not even sure that she even really knows let alone tells people. And the kids that she goes to school with have been bullying her since the second grade. She's in the seventh grade now!

She's such a sweet girl, and only tries to help people, and yet all they can do is bully her whether it's in person, on Facebook, through her phone, and all I can try to do is do what's best and stand up for her and any other victims.

And yet she's still nice to them - because she knows how it feels. I'm hoping through websites like this, and organizations, that maybe someday we'll live in a world where kids & anybody can feel safe in their own community. To feel safe in life. So hang in there, whoever you are, wherever you are. You'll only come out stronger in the end. I promise."

I Used To Bully

Posted: 5/17/2011

THE TIME I BULLIED: My story is of the time I used to bully innocent kids in my class and school. Before being diagnosed with Bipolar and PTSD, I had uncontrolled ranges and it resulted in bullying. I used to hit, scream, spit, and intimidate kids. I feel a lot of bullying is due to undiagnosed mood disorders. I feel that the kids who are undiagnosed are causing some of the bullying. This is an issue that should be addressed from a medical point of view in many but not all cases. I feel this issue should be addressed by teachers, principals, counselors, school officers, and parents as well. I feel my class and school is now a happier and safer place after me being diagnosed. Even kids can change the community, I am 12 years old.

I Am Really Glad I Told My Mom

Posted: 5/17/2011

Hi this is Jessica. I was bullied in fourth grade. It was so bad I was missing school. I had to move schools. I would rather not say what type of bulling it was but it was horrible. Now I am at a new school that has a no bully toleronance. I love it here. I am no longer depressed. I was really glad I told my mom, trust me adults can help if you let them in.

I'm Out To Make A Difference

Posted: 5/17/2011

My name is Krissy. When I was a freshman, I was made fun of for having glasses and ''frizzy'' blonde hair and for not being as rich as everyone else. But I didn’t see it. I let it go in the beginning of the year. Then everyone would gang up and throw full bottles of soda at me. They would make puking sounds in front of me and tell me why do I even waste my time. Kids would also say I’m too fat to wear those clothes and how I should just go bald I'd be somewhat prettier. During the year, the bullying got worse. I was pushed away from everyone and every day when I came home I would cry in my room. It got so bad...that I ended up cutting my wrists. At the time I didn’t know better. And no matter whom I told, they would always say 'that’s terrible' but never do anything about it.

I was harassed by people I didn’t even know and was a laughing stock of the entire high school. I’ve been told I’m an overweight waste of space that should've killed herself years ago. Someone who would never go anywhere. A failure. A nobody. I wrote songs and poems on my experiences and showed them to people for help...they didn’t listen. They targeted my friend who nearly committed suicide. I was pushed in the school hallways and was being played around with. Kids would fake ask me out because they felt bad for me..they saw I was crying and laughed some more. Saying I’m a weak fragile who means nothing. And that I’m the reason why the world is a bad place.

But, luckily before I did something worse, I left the school. I am now at a different high school and am stronger with who I am. Bullying is 100% preventable. So now, I’m the defender. And I’m out to make a difference.

Hi! My name is Ilse, I'm 20 years old and I'm from Mexico and this is my story.

When I was around 5 or 6, in first grade specifically, there was a girl that wanted everything I have: supportive and caring parents, success in school works, someone to be proud of her. So she started to call me, secretly, spoiled girl. It hurt like hell. I didn't tell my parents this in the beginning, I was hoping that someday that will stop, but I was pretty wrong. I was silenced because I was afraid that something bad will happen to me, my little siblings, my teachers or my parents will get mad, or get hurt, or something bad will happen to them. And I was dealing with this for 4 years, until I told my mom what was happening with that girl, we both cried. She asked me why I didn't tell her before that moment, and I said that I was scared. She talked with my teacher about this and with the principal too, so they can be aware of any situation that will happen next. That girl continued doing during that school year, and my parents and I made a decision: it was time for me to go to another school. I felt weird in my new school, but something magical happened: I was myself there, I wasn't afraid anymore; I met tons of new people and made some new friends. For the first time in many years, I was happy.

Bullying is not about only to feel better with yourself making fun of other people, is about destroying some other's life. That's what happened with me. But I was happy to start a new life when I changed school. Together we can make the difference about having a sad world or making a happy one, is your choice, but I hope you'll do the right thing.

I Wish I Could Find Her

Posted: 5/17/2011

Hi my name is Jordan, I am in 8th grade, and I used to be a bully and now I am being bullied. In 6th grade I was beginning a new year at a new school. I was being bullied because I was the only African American girl in that grade. People eventually stopped bullying me and bullied a girl named Angie or as they like to call her "It".

They treated her as though she was an object. I eventually thought it was ok to call her "It" as well but this only made me feel bad. Today I think about her everyday and think about how hard it was for me to be bullied. I wish I could speak to her but the only thing is that she left the school and I have no idea what happened to her. I have tried my best to find her so I can tell her that I will be her shoulder to lean on if she needs it. I guess my point is that being a bully and being bullied are not okay.

Tell Someone

Posted: 5/17/2011

I’m 21 and was bullied from the age of 9 right through to the age of 15 by the same people. I thought going into high school would get me away from them but it didn’t. It made it harder for me to stand up to them because the school was new and much bigger than my primary school. I would get called foul names, be laughed at in classes, have notes sent around about me and be kicked about after school. I never knew who to speak to and tried so hard just to ignore it to make it go away. It doesn’t go away if you ignore it. You need to tell someone. a teacher, a friend, a family member someone who can help you and make it stop.  No one deserves to be bullied and it needs to stop!!!

Being Cruel is No Joke

Posted: 5/17/2011

I liked this one guy who used to go to my school last year (he's a year older than me) for a year and a half and now he's in high school so I barely see him. 

On Facebook he asked me out (This was in January this year). I actually said yes for the first time (I've never had a boyfriend because I didn't want one. I've been asked to go out in the past, but I said no to everyone because I wanted to be with someone who I really liked). We changed our relationship status and everything you're suppose to do. 

After a week of going out, we decided to go out to the local outdoor mall. I went there with some of my friends and he was supposed to come with his. When I was there, I saw him, and it turns out it was all a joke. His older brother was on his account and my "first boyfriend" was in on the joke. 
Not only did he lie to me, the guy I liked was so mean to me the next few weeks. Months actually. He still is. It's amazing how someone can come off as a really shy and sweet person, but truly be a total jerk. 
He would call me names, he would make fun of me, and he would say mean things to me online. I unfriended him on Facebook, but he kept adding me. 

I was never really insecure because I knew that I had a lot going for me and I had absolutely nothing to be insecure about, but because of what he did I started to hate myself.

This truly hurt me. I would never let these kinds of things hurt me, but this was so hard. I cut myself because of this. I tried stopping. I finally stopped after months. 

I started going through depression. I still am. I'm losing a lot of my friends because they don't like how I act. They say I'm different and they like the old me. I have to go to counseling now. I'm only 14. Just a funny little joke could really affect someone.
