FAB: Fashion Against Bullying
A few days ago I received an email from SupportFAB asking me to participate and share my side regarding Fashion Bullying. Here’s the email…
My side of the story? As I was growing up, I don’t give much of a crap on what other people would say about how I dress up. People around me don’t understand and refuse to understand that I am simply being myself. I dress the way that I do because I am comfortable that way. With all that, I have been labeled a “Bitch” and a “Weirdo” … and more names that I could ever think of.
Expressing myself wasn’t easy as I am the only one who is half korean, half filipino back in my younger days. Most Chinese kids stay in Chinese school, I got out and went to regular school. There are a few around but I don’t speak the language, and most Filipino’s judge me and some pretend to want to be my friend only to stab me behind my back … so I am my own island. Which is why I treasure the few friends that I have.
If you’re a victim of Fashion Bullying, step up and rise to the top. Join the movement and express yourself.
