Rurika was heavily bullied in middle school. Her classmates made fun of her for the color of her skin, and elected her class president, despite the fact that Rurika hardly spoke Japanese then. When Rurika went to her teacher for help, she said that there was nothing she could do to overturn the class’s decision. Rurika entered high school determined to depart from her dark middle school years. She made it a point to talk to everyone, and in time, she became best friends with a girl in school.
