Cybersmile and Normani Saved My Life
Thank you Juliana for your contribution. If you would like your story featured on our website, send it via email to [email protected] and someone will be in touch!
My name is Juliana, I’m 18 years old and I’ve been a victim of internet abuse. All this started because I published a picture of me on my Twitter, and I was greeted with hateful comments – I just became sad, and I was diagnosed with depression, 1 year and a half later, I was more isolated in my room and had my thoughts of suicide…the internet was my refuge…
And even then I received messages of hate that hurt me so much …
I’m a Harmonizer and when it came to me that Normani was also receiving abuse, I tried to find a way to stop people from sending hate and to live a good life. That’s when I started to see news about cyberbullying and I found Cybersmile,
I saw her in the same situations and how love always prevails and I applied that for myself. I remember the quote: “love will always overcome hatred”, and then came the news that Normani became an Ambassador of Cybersmile. I simply had no words to describe my great admiration for you.
She simply with her words made me have the willpower to stand up, fight and spread love, and I am so grateful to her and to you, for every tweet you share – it’s a way of refuge for people who feel offended by the abuse.
Today I can say that I am a new person and two people who abused me on social networks, today they are my friends and with me, spread love, so I thank you for all the support and love you give to each person on Twitter. I hope that God blesses each one of your team very much and that you continue to save lives, as you have saved mine.
Forgive me for the mistakes, I’m not very fluent in English, I love you very much.
