A Look Back

Posted: 5/3/2011

My name is Mary and I am 22 years old. I heard of this program from Demi Lovato at a concert this past year. I just want to say THANK YOU for developing such awareness to bullying. When I was younger there was nothing out there like this. When I was in grade school and high school I use to be teased, because of my weight and my smarts. I use to have food thrown at me and called names on a daily basis. The truth is they the bullies who was doing it didn’t know how sick I was and that is why I had and still have a weight issue. I was too scared to tell anyone so I kept it to myself and I think that was one of the worse moves. But instead I didn’t let the kids get to me instead I became stronger and it made me who I am today. I learned to be positive and just be me and not let anyone get under my skin because if you do that way they are winning.

The truth I discovered is they are just bullies because they have their own insecurities. So today I look back and I see how accomplish I became versus the bullies and in the end I know I won! I would like to help in any way I can with this program, because I know the pain these teens are going through. I want to help to try to stop kids hurting themselves or taking their own lives because of this. I want them to understand that is a way of the bullies winning and having power. I want to help kids be strong and take a stand and realize we are all equals and all are going through the same thing.
