Have you ever been bullied? If so, what was the situation and how did you overcome it?

Yes, when I was younger a group of my peers joined together to make fun of me and wrote horrible things about me. I told my brother who was older than I and he was able to talk to everyone and mediate the situation.

When you were younger, what would you do if you saw someone being bullied?

When I saw bullying happening I would usually befriend the person I saw being bullied. I wanted them to know they were not on their own.

Can you provide advice to someone who may be a victim of bullying?

I would say to reach out. The worst thing is suffering in silence.

Have you ever been cyberbullied? If so, what did you do to stop it?
