roughly two years ago this week, a video went viral of a 15 year old “fat girl” with poor technique from little delaware. two years ago my life changed, and it’s been the craziest two years of my life. never thought i’d be able to have all of these opportunities, or get to share them with thousands of followers. in 2019, i will show more of who i am, and i’m looking forward to finding myself again. I lost myself trying to be the “perfect” role model, when there is no such thing. I tried to portray my life as all rainbows and sunshine when it wasn’t. 2019 will be a year of learning to be me again, a year where i won’t be afraid to show the hard times of my life, and a year of focusing on my training.
Two black girls from Indianapolis live in fear of attending school, as they have to deal with racist bullies while they are trying to learn.
Their parents spoke out about the issue as they wish to raise awareness about it. One of the girls’ fathers, Alexander Wortham, said that silence is the worst response to bullying and that schools should not be indifferent to the issue.
The main bully, a male student, was suspended for his behavior but was allowed to return to school a week later. However, the girls fear what will happen when he returns from his suspension.
Two 11-year-old girls from North Dakota, Madissen and Sophia, committed suicide within two months of each other. They referred to each other as ‘girlfriend,’ and it is thought that they took their lives due to bullying.
Both of their parents admitted that they had discussed their daughters’ sexuality with them, but they were unaware that they were being bullied at school because of it.
Despite their tragic loss, the girls’ parents chose to remember the happy memories they have of their daughters, such as Sophia’s love of the outdoors.
