Assemblyman Mike Eng told students at the rally that bullying affected his self-esteem and academics in school. "I was bullied so badly and repeatedly that I had bad grades," Eng said, according to the Star-News. "I was even afraid to raise my hand in class because I thought the bullies would kick my chair, and then later find me outside and kick something else."
Eng has also worked to fight bullying at a state level, authoring an anti-bullying assembly bill passed by Gov. Jerry Brown that expands the definition of bullying and allows school districts to use school safety funds for prevention programs.
