Writing down my feelings helped me to sort out the hard timesand empowered me to move on.
DOMINIQUE was interested in museums, which most kids do not find interesting. That made her a target for bullying and she felt she couldn’t trustanyone. When a friend that didn’t know about this found out later that DOMINIQUE had been bullied, it made Dominique realize that maybe kids hurteach other without knowing it. She began to spend time with others and even studied abroad in Japan. In writing about her experience for a speechcontest, she was finally able to sort out her feelings and find the strength to move on.
