If you met Sydney today, you would never believe that just two years ago she was bullied miserably at school and had lost all her self-confidence. Sydney was as low as you can go. But she got through it! With the help of her mom, The Peace Center, and Girls Unlimited, Sydney is a smiling, confident young woman today. She played the piano at her school talent show and received a standing ovation! She helps other kids who are suffering from the mean things others say and do to them. And she got her smile back! That’s why Sydney is our hero.
This is a poem she wrote about her experience. It beautifully captures the feelings of being a victim and then a survivor!
