I was badly bullied throughout my school life because I walked differently to the other children.
My main inspiration for creating these posters was past experience, I grew up having to deal with the issue of bullying and by standing tall and smiling over the situation has made me the strong person I am today. I hate to see people going through bullying, feeling different and like the ‘odd one out’, this is why for my A-Level Graphics exam I chose to illustrate the issue of feeling left out in different ways.
O.T.O.L.I …… Have you been there?
A news report today has claimed that children at some schools in Essex have been allegedly told by teachers to act less gay to prevent being bullied. Apparently, they had been warned about their appearance and their sexuality by teachers who may have had little training on how to deal with bullies.
