    When I was in a high school in Singapore, I was a very quiet and shy girl. I was afraid of people getting too close to me, as a consequence, I did not have any friends I thought I was mysterious in that way. It started with a boy who seated beside me. One day, when I was paying close attention to the teacher I realized that he could not keep his eyes off me. I admit I was delighted because I never had a guy mesmerized by my beauty before and I took it as a big compliment. Besides, I thought he was quite cute! As usual, the classroom teases typical of high school started. Everyone said that this guy had a big crush on a girl in our class, my heart stopped in my chest: I was waiting for him to say my name and admit. I really liked him… However, instead, my whole class said he liked the beau in my class instead. I admit I wasn’t very happy about it. One day, another boy from my class stared at me in a way that said he was entranced by my beauty, while I walked past him at the bus stop. I have no idea where this Rumour came about suddenly everyone said that I loved him! I denied it vehemently. His Girlfriend became very jealous and one day, he and his friends cornered me in class and called me “an ugly b—-“. I was very upset and that was the start of the bullying where every day in class… His friends would shout and proclaim loudly that the prettiest girl in the class was his Girlfriend and I was the ugliest girl! To be honest, I had never allowed such comments to hurt me. I didn’t even like her Boyfriend! There was no need to Attack me in such a way. I really liked the boy who had sat beside me. I continued to flirt with him ignoring the jibes. Just when I was certain that this guy really liked me(from the way he smiled, flirted and touched me sometimes), one day I looked at him and he looked like he really really hated me. It was so sudden and like overnight, that day during class when I presented, he mocked me from behind, humiliating me and everyone said I deserved it. They said I should have stayed away from him and that he liked the beau of the class. I could not compare with her. I was heartbroken, he did that to me Everyday and everyone hated me even the Teachers who justified his actions as right. No one even stood up for me being humiliated in that way every day. I was afraid of going to school, afraid of hearing the mockery, the name-calling and the looks. Of course, it’s an episode behind me, but I’m always lagging somewhere behind there as much as I run away from that past, I’m reminded of what I’m afraid of that girl was really ME. It’s really depressing schools allow pupils to show disrespect to each other. It should change and I hope,soon.
