    I don’t care if my story is over the 200 words limit, I just want to get this out of me.

    Ever since middle school I have been bullied. I was a shy kid growing up because I would switch schools. Since I didn’t talk much, kids at school asked me “can you talk?”, “do you have teeth is that why you can’t talk?”, “can you say swears?”, and more on since I didn’t talk much.

    Making friends for me is very difficult since when I started to get bullied I became antisocial. I didn’t feel safe where ever I went and I didn’t like interacting with people.

    In high school things got worse for me. Not only am I a shy person but I’m short. I’m 4′ 8″ and I’m 17 I know I have stopped growing since middle school, I’ve stayed the same height since. When I go to high school people would comment on my shortness. One time we were getting dismissed from lunch and when I was throwing away my lunch I heard a guy comment “she’s so short we’re normal and she’s not.” I mostly keep these things to myself and shrug them off, but I do hear it quite often. Or when I present for class and I go stand in front of the class people would say “she’s so short” again, and it would make me nervous inside when I present.

    I’ve been uncomfortable and feel unsafe in school and this is my last year as a senior. I really don’t want to go to graduation because I know people will say stuff about me when I’m up on stage.

    I’ve had a bad history in school with bullies. I’m only bullied verbally. Another experience I’ve had is that I would do my classwork in class and I would hear people talking about me since I sit in front of them and they sit behind me. I would hear them, they would think I didn’t hear them but no. After they were done talking about me, one guy has the nerve to tell the other half of the class and his group of friends about me spreading rumors.

    I’m so happy this is my last year in school, I just want it to be over. I’m mostly absent from school because I don’t want to hear what bullies say about me.
