Mele

"I bully guys and girls because it was my way of kind of fitting in … everyone was … getting their name known as getting in trouble, like from teachers mentioning them and like that's how people would stand out as being a bully and making other people feel uncomfortable."

Chin Chin

“They were talking to a friend of mine, talking about me saying how ugly I am thinking I'm so cool and that I'm a gangster and stuff … I just started doubting myself. I was like, am I not enough? Is this how I really should be?”

Thomas

"After the program, the Chins and the white kids intertwined a lot more, like we were more together. It wasn't just them in their group of friends and us in our group of friends.”

Mitchell

"My friend was getting bullied … I went up to him and I was like 'stop it, you're really hurting his feelings … You're really just ruining his life, you should just leave him alone'.”
