About

I'm quite the social person, but have beenbullied. All I wanted was to fit in, but that didn't seem to happen. I was too skinny, I was too smart, I was not good enough at sports (ironic,isn't it?) and was called many "nice" names.Started in primary school and things got worse. In year 10, I had decided I wanted to be alone forever and be good at university. No one seemed to have an interest in me, good grades attracted unwanted attention from my colleagues who would push me, mock me all the time. I carried on.At university things seemed to become normal. I had friends, could relate to people. I was not "different" anymore. It took time to build myself up.I don't think anyone needs to go through this. I was lucky, but many people aren't. Bullying is real and Standing Up against it is something we must do and teach our kids to do!Kids? Not only kids! We must fight it in our workplace, our daily lives!

Run, Atreyu, run! Do I have to donate to you every time you run? That would be instant poverty ;) I support this cause 100% so I donated a pound for every percentage point.
