My name is Love, and I’m a student at Jacquet Middle School. When I joined Writing for the Soul Workshop™, I simply wanted to learn how to make money promoting my story. But when I was offered an Internship, I realized that I could do so much more to help kids like me that have experienced hurt and pain in their life.
I was born with Gastroschisis, which made it pretty hard growing up. Everyone made fun of me because I don’t have a belly button. It was also really hard growing up with asthma. I couldn’t do everything that the other kids did.
I was in the hospital almost every year. I hated being in the hospital, but I loved their food. My parents split up when I was in elementary school. My dad and I used to be close, but now all he does is smoke and get drunk all the time. As of today, we don’t have a real relationship with each other.
See, we all go through a lot in life. Sharing our stories connects us with people like us. This writing program has shown me that I am not alone. Neither are you.
My Impact To Help End Bullying
Would it surprise you to know that those who witness bullying may be more impacted than those who are victims or those who bully? According to the American Psychological Association, “Students who witnessed acts of bullying were more likely to report greater psychological distress than those students who were bullies or victims, according to the results. This was the case even for students who had not been victims themselves, although being both a witness and a victim did also significantly predict mental health problems.”
As an intern here at Writing for the Soul Workshop™, I’m learning skills in sales that will give me an edge in the career that I choose later in life. But the best part of my job is giving away copies of The Bully Diaries. Every sale I make means that one of my peers will get this life-saving book for free.
If you would like to donate one or more copies of The Bully Diaries to students in an effort to help me end bullying, use the Contact Form below to connect with me. Together, we just might save a life. The Bully Diaries is also available at Amazon.
