Akshith Bhimanere

Age 12, Scotland

I had faced a lot of bullying in primary school, both verbally and physically. At the start I thought, this entire place is a bad place, and I became a stereotype thinking that the UK was a bad place and it would be fine at other places. Later onwards I realized that life was only going to get harder, and that there were many other people who were in a similar situation to me. Whenever I had got bullied, I NEVER fought back. I believe that if you stay calm, then everything else will be too. As I moved into high school, there was a spot for an equality representative, and so I thought that it would be a good idea to take up this position and help those in need so they do not have to suffer through things that are not their fault.
