Chat with a Young Person about their bullying experience

Hi everyone,

 

We are very lucky and privledged to have one of Reach Out's Youth Ambassadors chatting with us about their personal experience with bullying on

8:30PM to 9:30PM EST - Friday 17th of February 2017 

 

This is how excited and grateful I am that we have a YA wanting to share her story with us...

HULU tv fox thanks thank you

If you have any questions about what it is or how it works - please post them here.

 

We really want to make sure she feels appreciated so it's really important we have some parents.

Please comment below to let me know if you're able to make it. Or, if you're keen to hear what's said but unable to attend at that time, please comment below.

Re: Chat with a Young Person about their bullying experience

Hey guys, don't forget about this Friday and the young person we have coming in to talk about her experience with bullying behaviour. She's here to answer your questions about what helped her and what didn't.

It's an awesome way to get an insight into what young people need in those situations.

I would love you guys to make it

If you're not available on the Friday to join in the conversation, you can post your questions below and I'll make sure they get answered.

It's in my diary! It will be enlightening and I'm looking forward to hearing her story.

That's wonderful @taokat If you know of any other parents who might get something out of it, please let them know. I'd love the young person to have a couple more parents than just you and I to talk to. Cat Wink

 

Regarding where you go...it's just here.

Does that make sense to everyone? Please feel free to ask more questions if you're unsure.

Hi everyone, 

 

My name is Carissa and I'm 20years old and I'm currently a university student. I experienced bullying right through primary school and a little bit in high school. I was mostly targeted by women and was bullied in a range of different ways, such as verbally, physically and emotionally. 

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
