Most young people have a hard time at some point during their teens, but mine started as soon as I entered secondary school.
I was bullied.
Mainly this was bullying in the form of abusive names and taunts, but it got to a point where it became so bad that I developed a phobia of socialising with people and school itself.
I dropped out of school because of this bullying. But now I want to ensure that other young people do not go through what I went through with an animated film.
The film focuses on real stories from victims of bullying, and from an actual bully too. I wanted people to understand the effects bullying has, and ask the question - why do it?
I'd like to thank the following people for helping me with my Fix:
