    I recently found this amazing organization through a school project on how social media can help support human rights. I chose your organization because I felt it really helps make a difference, not only to educate about bullying, but to prevent it in many ways. This last spring I saw one of the most terrible effects of bullying that I felt was necessary to discuss. My best friend since First Grade's brother was bullied and took his own life at just 13. He was an amazing boy and had so much ahead of him. Ever since this experience I can honestly say I am doing everything I can to help stop anything like this in the future! Read more »

    As a sixth grader I was a bully. Beating people up saying mean things to everyone. Then I changed. I saw a girl in the bathroom cutting herself because of something I said. I knew then it had to stop. After that the rules got reversed. Everyone started bullying me and they still are 4 years later. I have been a cutter for three years and very suicidal. I am getting better but its still hard. I don't want anyone getting beaten up, called names, have rumors spread about them or be cyberbullied like I am. Every one needs to take a stand because its not right at all. Read more »

    It started my sophomore year when I was 16. I had been attending a performing arts high school, but became very sick and had to switch to a regular high school. I knew only a few people, but made friends very quickly. I started talking to a boy that was a year older than me, and that was probably the worst thing to ever happen to me. His group of friends started tweeting mean things about me, and he just stopped talking to me. Everyone kept saying that it would just blow over, but it only got worse. My closest group of friends were guys, which didn't help anything. There were rumors that I hooked up with the entire hockey team, that I had sex with 4 boys in one night, the list went on and on. Everyone called me the slut. The girls in my grade stopped talking to me, rather than sticking up for me, in fear that they would be treated the same way. I completely shut down. I didn't try in school, I didn't communicate with my parents, I didn't hang out with anyone. And from there it only got worse. People said I was a "thirsty bitch" and a "puck slut" and that I "transferred schools because I had gone through all of the guys at my old school". Then, the night before the last day of school, my school has a tradition where everyone goes out to egg each other's houses. My house was targeted by everyone. Only, they took it to the extreme. They had eggs, paintballs, and I later found out that they were planning on burning "slut" into my yard. Someone drove by and saw me outside; they called me a "f*cking slut". Then all of a sudden about 6 cars full of people pulled up to my house. Things along the lines of "let's f*ck this bitches house up" were being said. Thank God they all got scared when they saw me and my parents outside. We called the cops and the cops stayed outside my house the rest of the night to make sure they didn't come back. On the last day of school, the upperclassmen lined the sidewalks as we walked in. They cheered for everyone. And then when I walked through I got booed. The teachers outside didn't do anything. People started tweeting at me saying I was a bitch and what not. Girls were looking for me supposedly so they could start a fight with me. A total of maybe 3 people talked to me that day. I was numb. I didn't cry once that day. I didn't eat. I didn't pay attention in class. I was ready to give up. And if it weren't for the boy who came over and apologized, who is now my absolute best friend, I wouldn't be able to tell this story today. I confronted many people about everything. Some apologize, some still act like I'm worthless, and some act like it never happened. I pray to God that no one ever gets treated the way I did. That no one ever feels as worthless as I did. I'm sick of my school not doing anything. I want to help Stomp Out Bullying. Read more »

    I was bullied in elementary school and in middle school because of my weight and how I look. Kids would laugh and point, make fun of what I wore. Seventh grade I changed… all I wore was dark clothes and hoodies. My hair that was down to my mid back was cut up to my ears, I started wearing tons of makeup to hide “the ugliness”. I had finally had enough and was looking for an escape, I started cutting myself when I was 12 years old, I drifted away from my family, I popped pills, and eventually tried to kill myself. Obviously I failed. Again in high school I changed but for the better for myself. I did become cold towards people, I trusted no one, I was stuck up, and all I did was my work then leave. I had one friend through this all and he watched and kept me going through it all taught me how to stand up for myself. Last year my junior year in high school my baby sister was being bullied and I guess that just would not do because I then was bullied by the mother of the child who was bullying my sister. I took it to the principal of my school he just dismissed it, In a way he bullied me also because later that day he called me to the office and yelled at me asking what I had said to those girls, when I said I had not even seen them he told me if he got another complaint I would be taken out in handcuffs. This year I was a victim of cyber bullying, I received messages from a girl telling me to kill myself the world would be better off and calling me names. That night a friend of mine sent me a picture of some texts. It was the girl bragging that she had made a fake account and told me to do that. I took that to my principal and he just dismissed it once again. Bullying in my school has become a normal thing and it makes me sick!! The principals and teachers just over look it. This is my last year at that school before I graduate and I plan to change the bullying problem. Read more »
