Hi, my name is Seth Daniels.
I am in 6th grade and just turned 12.
Here is my experience of being bullied:
It all started in third grade when I was bullied about my weight. My classmates would call me fat and overweight, and they would tell people fake things about me. It made me feel horrible, and I started to not look forward to going to school. My self-esteem began to plummet, and I felt like no one cared about me. I started not to wear certain clothes because I thought I looked overweight. I would only wear big and baggy clothes. I’m happy I was able to talk to my teachers about it, because they helped me deal with the bullies. I am learning to never listen to what bullies have to say.
By sharing my story, I hope that we can stop childhood obesity bullying and kids can start being proud of themselves and what they look like.
