Teenager Speaks Out On Cyberbullying

Teenager Speaks Out On Cyberbullying

Teenager Speaks Out On Cyberbullying My name is Jewel Edwards, I’m 17 years old and I am a witness as well as a victim to Cyber Bullying. Like most teenagers, I enjoy the internet. When I hop onto my electronics I emerge myself into the Cyber World. From multiplayer games, to simply texting, or engaging in regular social media activities.This takes up a large portion of my everyday life. Recently, as some of you know, I’ve been quite ill. Some results of my illness included me having multiple seizures, appetite loss, and various other things. What most people don’t know is what happens while on these sites, apps, & so fourth, but I do. Very recently, someone I was dating ended our relationship, and it took a turn for the worst. He started shaming my appearance, and making fun of the small tooth gap I have, which he knows I’m extremely sensitive about. But this was merely a breeze compared to what came next. While him & I were together I had the first seizure of my life, and some of his friends did not believe that I was telling the truth. While in the hospital my mother took a video of my seizing to show my biological father who no longer lives with us. When I was stable, I took that video and sent it to my boyfriend because I trusted him. I wanted him to be able to tell his friends that I wasn’t lying. He promised not to show anyone the video and told me he had deleted it shortly after I sent it to him,...

A Mother Fights On In Her Daughter’s Memory

A Mother Fights On In Her Daughter’s Memory By Michael John Sullivan It was a February night like no other in the Freeze family household — one that will live in heartbreaking, reflective memory forever. Seventeen year old Payton told her family something terrible was going on at school. There were no indications that 17-year old Payton Freeze was thinking about committing suicide. “She did not disclose the real bullying until the night before her suicide,” said Payton’s Mom, Kim. “She used to say that the kids were mean.” Payton’s Dad, Brent, discovered her body. Kim Freeze had taken previous action in defense of her daughter. “I complained to the school back in November that Payton was stating the kids were being “mean” to her and the counselor stated she would meet every week with her and she did not (say the same thoughts).” It was in the following February when Dad found Payton. “I am doing my best,” Kim said. Kim added: “The police have not closed the case. So we don’t know anything.” Left behind are not only grieving parents but Joshua Hollingsworth, a sister Kayla Berlin and her grandparents James and Kim Berlin and Bob and Lois Freeze. The pictures Kim Freeze shares on the Facebook pages of her daughter and the family are both beautiful and heart wrenching. The Freeze family is doing everything they can to keep their daughter’s memory alive, whether it would be on social media or at the high school where Payton was supposed to graduate this year as a senior. “We have fought to get our daughter remembered in the yearbook and at graduation,” Kim...
