Derek suffered at the hands of bullies because of his sexuality when he was younger." It got to the point one day when I just had enough and I went home to my parents and I said I am not going back to that school. " I won't allow myself to be bullied anymore and that comes from being confident in who I am and accepting who I am.The roughest years are your teen years and what is so cool is that when you make it through your teen years you know have control and it does get better."
