Lions, tigers and bears. Oh my! High school can be a real jungle. I'll share my bullying experiences and why you shouldn't give up hope.
My name is Cassie Blackwell and I am 18 years young. Born and raised in Corpus Christi, I grew up always a little chubbier than all the other kids so I was always made fun of. Kids made fun of my clothes, my hair, and always had to let me know that i was fat. My story is about bullying because I have seen way too many stories on the news about it. Whether it be Columbine or Virginia Tech, teeage suicide and depressed children. I'm tired of it. There is still hope left in the world, I wish people realized this before it's too late. I've been bullied my whole life and I'm still alive and healthy. I don't let it get to my head anymore.
