Today is National Day Of Action Against Bullying and Violence.
Bullying is a huge issue in schools and even workplaces. The bottom line is, it seriously sucks to be bullied.
I have been filling in for Chrissie Swan on her breakfast radio show on Mix FM. On the show this week we have been covering the topic of bullying every day. I shared on the show how I was bullied during different times at school. It was a tough time and the fact that bullying is still such a big issue breaks my heart. It’s hard enough growing up and going through puberty, let alone trying to fit in without the extra stress of being bullied. I was asked to write a letter to my bully and read it out on air. Hear is the audio of that letter.
The beautiful Michala Banas, who was the first fabulous dame to sit on the couch for a chat with me also went through a really tough time at school with bullying. If you missed that video check it out below.
