Katerina Alexandre Graham is a Swiss-born American actress, model, singer, and dancer. She is best known for her role of Bonnie Bennett on The CW television series The Vampire Diaries. Graham has worked for Mary Kay company in 2002.

I had racially prejudiced comments directed at me on different blogs. People think that just because you're in the spotlight you're fair game. It's hard and I don't think you're ready at any age for it. Thankfully, I have some great fans who got me through it."

"When you get bullied, you automatically think that you're the reason why you're getting bullied. The reality is, it's about them, not you...I'm all about blocking people. I'm all about saying, 'You know what, I don't need this in my life.'"

"I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved who I am not. Even if you're not accepted, at least you are still yourself."

For someone like me, who’s a little different with my fashion sometimes, I get targeted and bullied just like they might in school. Still to this day I’ll still go on Tumblr and I’ll look at the fan art and stuff like that and I’ll randomly see something that I’m like, “oh that’s kind of mean, that hurt my feelings,” but its all part of just being human and I want them to know that that even I get it.

I call my friends and I’m like, “This made me feel upset, what do I do with this?” And they’re like, “Why do you pay attention to what other people think of you?” You just really can’t. No matter how much you want to, these people either don’t know you, or they're jealous, or they have their own agenda, or they’re too insecure to be themselves. So they’ll attack you. You have to just talk to your friends, talk to your mom, or if you don’t have them around that moment, just say, “You know what? I can handle it. It’s fine. I can do this,” and just keep going. What else can you do?

I live right by an elementary school and I saw Vampire Diaries clothes and backpacks almost every day so the popularity she is getting from this show is worth it for what she had to endure
