I was bullied when I started secondary school and that led to two years of anxiety and fear of leaving my front door.
I lived in fear once before and swore that wouldn’t happen to me again. No one should have to go through that.
I’ve met many young people who have experienced some form of discrimination.
I’ve heard people say things about people from different ethnic backgrounds like ‘go back where you came from’ and ‘why are you here taking our jobs and homes?’ and using racist words.
I believe we need to recognise individuals and appreciate the differences between us.
