Campaign: To put a stop to bullying by raising awareness of the impact it can have.

I got bullied when I was 11 or 12 in Year 8 at school.

 

Two girls began making fun of me and called me names and it meant I didn't want to go to school. It just changed me, it made me moody and I would come home from school and just sit in my room, not talking to anyone.

 

Even though my Mum knew something was wrong I didn't want to tell her. I was worried she would go to the school and that would mean I would get called names even more. I didn't have the confidence to tell anyone and I'd just sit and cry.

 

Eventually I did tell my Head of House at school and it got sorted out. I wish I'd had the confidence to seek help sooner as it would have got dealt with so much quicker.

 

With Fixers I am producing a poster campaign to get my message out that bullying isn't just a laugh. People should tell someone straight away if they are being bullied.
