What experiences have you had with bullying?
I have had many people spread rumors about me saying I was mean or I did something that I did not. In 5th grade, a girl told people that my friend and I kicked her out of a group when really she quit and said all of our groups ideas were stupid it made me sad because I thought I was her friend but apparently, she didn’t feel the same way.
(9/12/2007) I couldn’t understand why she didn’t want to be my friend or what I did to her. I found out that she actually just wanted attention and that I didn’t do anything to her but at the time it made me fell so bad.
How do you feel about bullying?
I think it is a bad thing and that people should try as hard as they can to stop it or prevent it from ever starting.
What have you learned about bullying from this project?
I have learned a lot from this project for example everyone has been bullied it doesn’t matter if they are popular or a nerd or anywhere in between they have been bullied.
Film Project Experience
What do you think of this project?
(9/5/2007) I think that this project might not help stop bullying but it will be a stepping stone to start people talking about bullying and their experiences because they can relate to the stories that we are talking about. Also it will show people who are only doing a tiny bit of bullying how it can escalate and become worse and how bad it can accualty make people feel.
How has the project been so far?
It has been fun and a great learning experience. I think it was cool to see people I new on ABC national news.
(9-10-07) I recently found out that I am going to be an actress in this movie and I am very excited about it.
What are your hopes and expectations for the coming weeks?
I hope that there won’t be any real bullying only acting going on and I am hoping that people can become better friends.
Poems/ Lyrics about bullying
(9/12/2007)Why do you judge me
Why don’t you just leave me alone
Mind your own business this has nothing to do with you
This isn’t new hot gossip this is my life
You always say mind your own business to me but you should take your own advice
So what if I like him you shouldn’t care you shouldn’t even know
You say I shouldn’t like him but I do
I don’t know why the he went around telling you but none of you even know him so don’t pretend like you do
Why do you judge me just because I like him
Why don’t you just L
Now it over are you happy
You finally got what you wanted
