    In general, I liked elementary school. I made lots of good friends and the kids would stick up for me when teachers picked on me. But, I was quieter than most kids, so the teacher would always put me on the spot and make me talk in front of the whole class. I don’t know if that helped or not. They always put me in a class without friends and one day in fifth grade, I met this girl who was always alone. I learned many people didn’t like her, so I decided to be nice to her.
    The first month was okay, but then she got mad at me if I hung out with any of my other friends. Because I was kind and quiet, I did what she told me to. I made most of the kids stop being mean to her. Unfortunately, this made me lose a lot of friends because they thought I was only her friend.
    In junior high, I got accepted into a school that is very difficult to get into. A few months later, I got phoned from one of my best friends saying she was put in foster care because of another girl. It was all so dramatic and it ended up putting me in a state of shock. I forgot my personality and basically became a mute as a result. Near the end of the school year, that girl who wasn’t liked by many people was once again hated by everyone. She decided I was her friend again and told me all sorts of stories. Then, she wanted to come to the school I was in, and so she sent in an application where she wrote my name in it also. Because I was so lonely that year of junior high, the teachers got her into the school, thinking she was a supportive friend. It wasn’t really fair, but they got her in before other kids who applied before her.
    Soon she told me to stay at my school, but I didn’t want to. I wanted to go back to my other school where I knew more people, but I didn’t because she asked me, I believed her sad story, and wanted to make her life better.
    In eighth grade, I made a lot of new friends and I loved it, but in ninth I was put in class with only one other person from last years’ class. I was in the same class as the girl who used to not be liked, and she had lots of people from last years’ class in this class, and she became popular.Every time I tried to talk to her she would shoot me dirty glares, and I would back away. At this point, I had made two new friends. They were also alone and I didn’t care what other people would think. I enjoyed what I had.
    One day, she started spreading stuff about me and she and another boy decided to pick on me. On the bus she would kick my seat, but because of my quietness and because she had her group of friends surrounding her, I never said anything. She also stole everybody who liked me or thought I liked. The boy started spreading rumors and so did many other people. The boy spread rumors about how I had down syndrome because of my quietness as a result of the things that happened in seventh grade. Even though it wasn’t true, the girl kept making me lose friends.
    Although life is looking sad, I still have the two new friends I made. The funny thing is that a girl spread a rumor about who I like and that mean girl believed her and made him her “husband”. It’s not even true that I like him anyways!
    So the point is, I am also bullied, and I don’t know why I deserved this. I was always kind, but that girl hated me for some reason. Even though I am bullied, I work hard and study, and I’m not letting those bullies get what they want. I don’t care! I also went through a lot of bullying in grade seven without any friends, so if I did it, you can too. One day things will look bright for you. I am sure that one day we WILL get a better life.
