Campaign: To encourage victims of bullying to speak out

I was bullied in primary school so I know what it’s like to be singled out.

 

My parents are from South America so I didn’t look like the other kids;  I felt like an outsider.

 

Although it was a long time ago, the experience of being told to go back to where I come from has stayed with me even today.

 

With Fixers, I want to encourage young people who are experiencing abuse of any kind, to speak to someone and not hide their problems.

 

Talking about it is a crucial step to stop it happening.
