I was in the fifth grade when I started getting bullied. I was bullied because people in my grade thought I was ugly and I had bad acne. They Would call me Ugly, bumpy, etc. They would say things like Damn! Your ugly! or You need Plastic Surgery. It happened all through out fifth grade and I'm glad I had at least one friend who was there for me. There were days when I just would break down and cry as soon as my mom picked me up! I couldn't take it! And it didn't stop there, It continued. In the sixth grade It got worse! The bullying went from Verbally to Physically! There were four boys that would always start the bullying and once they started everyone followed. I Remember there was a boy named Andrew and he always teased me but one day he took his recorder and started hitting me. He only stopped when the teacher walked in the classroom but after school I had another break down and I finally told my mom what was happening because I felt like I couldn't take it anymore. The next day she came to school and Andrew got expelled. Not just for that but because he used to hit other younger children. I felt badly about it. I remember crying because I didn't want him to get expelled but I came to realize later that it was for the best. I'm in the ninth grade now and the bullying still happens. Its just not as bad. I still get called ugly.The worst part of the bullying is over but the damage is done. The bullying caused me to have low self esteem and I made me believe that I am ugly. Bullying leaves SERIOUS emotional damage! But I know that I have to persevere and continue on with my life. I don't know if the bullying will ever stop but I know one thing, I WILL KEEP MY HEAD HELD HIGH AND STAY STRONG!

You are beautiful young lady and boys tease you most likely because they had a crush on you and were too immature to express their feelings for you.Keep that head held high and dont forget to smile!
