Campaign: To encourage young people to take a stand against bullies

Being bullied at school by my peers was very tough.

 

The cruel taunts and constant mocking made me feel worthless and unwanted, which really had a damaging effect on my self-esteem.

 

Afraid to tell anyone about what was happening in case things got worse, I eventually turned to a friend, who reassured me that everything was going to be okay.

 

With Fixers, my team and I have helped to create a poster campaign urging victims of bullying to speak out and seek help.

 

We hope it will show young people how important it is to talk about their issues and not let bullies bring them down.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
