#BULLYINGSTORY

In #bullyingstory we immerse into Rosalie’s (13) desktop. She has been bullied online offline the last couple of years. Because of the cyber bullying she even didn’t feel safe in her own bedroom. The bullying has had serious consequences: she finds it hard to trust her peers and that’s why it’s also difficult to make friends for her. Together with Rosalie we find hundreds of bullying stories of other young people on YouTube, where they tell their stories and how the bullying affected them. Rosalie recognizes herself in the stories and she decides to leave a reaction under the video of Sterre (12). It is a bit of a shock when she receives a response. Through the computer screen of Rosalie we meet Sterre and others, who have been bullied when they Skype with each other. Rosalie opens up when she notices that she is not the only one who struggles with the same problems. Could the internet change from her “worst enemy” into a “buddy”?
