Growing up in Sudbury and being only black child in an all French School was not easy! I’ve been called every racially affiliated name that ever existed. I grew up thinking I was ‘too black’ then moved to Toronto where I was bullied again for being ‘too white’. I’ve been subjected to bullying in the workplace and unhealthy relationships with years of insults, intimidation and physical abuse. Today, I am a Human Services Counsellor (full-time) and I’m able to encourage others to stand up against bullying in a positive and safe manner; and develop strategies that help victims cope, ripen social skills and improve self-esteem. TOGETHER, LET”S END BULLYING!
