    Brianna Ferguson: My story too begins in middle school. My name is Brianna Ferguson and I have had difficult times finding true friends at school. Those "popular" girls make it look so easy. They always walk around in their big group of friends like they own the school. I noticed this in 6th grade and knew right away I would never fit in. Through my middle school years I had a lot of self confidence issue; I always felt I was never good enouph for them and I felt I was under pressure or at least the image of that they were suppost to be my friends because thats the croud my mom was in growing up and I see my older brothers in. In 7th grade they started to talk to me because they were in a few of my classes and I actually started to date a guy from that croud. But when we broke up that summer, I felt I broke up with all my "new friends" too. When 8th grade rolled around I felt I had no one left to trust. My best friends Megan and Alex turned their backs on me. All I had was my friend Lindsay- she is a year younger than me so she was never in any of my classes. Day by day I would go to school hating every minute of it. And to make it worse, I ran for the president of student council- I have had my eye on that possition in forever- then of course a big, popular football player just had to run against me. It was the whole school who would vote for the president so the pressure was on. Closer to the election I began recieving phone calls from girls in my grade telling me I was worthless and a nobody and I should drop out the election before I make a total fool of myself bt loosing. This caused me to cry to myself every night before bed. I was also getting these looks of discust by girls at school. Even a few people I thaught I was still some what friends with turned against me. Luckily I won the election, but that only things worse at school. .Now the way people would look at me was like walls caving in on me every day where ever I went. I tried to keep my head up through my sports and wanted to try out one more thing- cheerleading. My normal sports then were cross country, track, soccer, and softball. I felt this was the only time in life I could ever try it so why not! I went through the try-outs like every other girl and some how made the squad with no previous experience. That only grew every girls hatrade toward me. Rumors started to spread that the only reason I tried out was so I could wear a short skirt to school. That was not true. Also I was practiclly shunned by the rest of the quad. At any given moment I had an idea, they wanted nothing to do with it or me. At the end of my awfull school year came graduation. I had given a nice speach in front of the whole 8th grade and their families but after was the difficult part. When everyone was outside taking pictures with their friends and lauphing and having fun, I found myself just watching. Depressed and jellous that I have no one do that with. My mom even asked me "Brianna, go find some friends to get pictures with!" She has no idea how difficult that was for me. From that moment on I found myself dredding high school only because all those same mean girls are going to be there too. Freshman year approched and I was so scared. But somthing good happened that year. I met a nice girl Amanda ,that went to another middle school, in my english class. We talked a lot and hung out a few times. I began to trust her and learned a lot about her too. Then in track I met a girl named Casey. She was awesome and went to the same middle school as Amanda. Little did I know, they were close friends and had a group of girl friends they wanted me to meet. So I did and since then they have all been my girls-Casey, Amanda, Raina, Dakota, Maddy, Emily, and Miranda. I still strugle with seeing those mean girls at school but in my head I assure myself that I have found the friends that matter most to me. I am now a junior in high school, varsity and captin of both cross country and track, manage wresling, recieve a 4.0 gpa. and I am the vice president (hoping president next year) of student council. My confidence has gone up a lot since you visited my school this year. It was your video that let me know I am not the only one who has experienced this. And I have also realized how lucky I am to have found such great friends. Thankyou : ) -


    Patricia: i pledge to be the best friend and known person i can be. and to be seen as someone who is kind to those who aren't kind. =) - North FortMyers


    Patricia: i can't remember what your name was or what i did to you(just that it was mean)but i'm sorry - I don't remember


    Patricia: when i was in elementary school there was a girl who hated nearly every fiber of my being. i never found out why she disliked me so much. she was a year older than me. and "smaller" than me. and the boys were so much worse. they would pick-on-me and make-fun-of me and would come up with this really hurtful game about "Patricia-germs". and everyday they would make some remark about my weight -


    Dion: Sorry everyone out there who I spread rumours of and or judged you by the way you act. I was naive back then, I didn't understand what you guys could have went through until I went through them myself. I genuinely say sorry to all you people out there. - All The Girls


    Josie: Hi, I want to say sorry because some girls were incredibly mean to me on a sleepover and I was so mad at them for making me feel like that. I wear my heart on my sleeve and find it hard to keep my feelings in. I am very sorry for blaming one girl for the whole thing and being nasty to her. I hope we can be friends again. - Helen

    mimmy: my friends always think that im weird,but im quiet and shy what i should do? -


    MEGHAN: i pledge that every girl will believe in who they are and not change for any girl or guy that wants you to change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -


    MEGHAN: i had a friend that i have known since kindergarten. i thought that she was always there for me. but i was wrong. i hope i am not the only one who has had this problem. this girl and i used to be best friends and now we are barely aquatints. she has back stabbed me sooooo many time i don't even know. i solved this problem by telling her to knock it off and told her off but apparently she doesn't care because she keeps doing it. -


    MEGHAN: You know i have watched things happen when they shouldn't. i think that people mostly girls should honor who they are instead of changing for somebody else, like a boyfriend or these popular girls that want you to change. That isn't right because no body should control you for who you are. i have been waiting to say this forever and specially online. i hope somebody will take this advice and actually use them. i love these kind of people who stand up for who they are and stand up for other people or just girls. -


    Erin high: Sorry I called you a bad name you know who you are -


    Imari Hall: i pledge to be kind and never talk crap about anyone or even gossip about another girl because it's happened to me and i didnt like and so i need to realize that the feelings i get, others can have to. i pledge to not judge a book by its cover and i pledge to not judge a person by where they come from but only by what they bring to the table. i am sorry to all the people i've heart emotionally pshyically and mentally. ive been teased all my life about everything on my body, my hair, face, eyebrows, teeth and on my life story. i had those times that i thought i wanted to kill myself because of everything that happened and because no one was there for me that i could really trust or, just in general. ive changed my actions because i want to help people but for when i was the "bully" i apologize. and i pledge to be better - Irvine

    Alicia: I pledge to be a kinder person, and not judge anyone anymore. - Ottawa, Ontario, Canada


    Alicia: Dear Young Alicia, I am so sorry for making you feel so insecure in your middle school years. It was a tough time changing schools and all you wanted was friends but by letting other girls tell you what's what and becoming someone you weren't and putting on a good face throughout the day but crying by night, it wasn't you. I am so glad you got out of that horrible phase and now you are happy with yourself and everything but you and I both have to work on being less sensitive and not caring so much about what people say. Listen to your heart, listen to Mom and most importantly, listen to you. Alicia, You're a beautiful girl!! I love you!! Older, Alicia - Alicia

    Isabel Hernandez: I want to Apologize to my best friend Katherine for letting you take the bullets while being in the middle of the whole 7th 8th grade thing with Tiffany. I also want to apologize to Tiffany for responding to your angry messages with more anger and negativity. It wasn't nice and if we talked about it we could have probably still have been friends. All of us. - Katherine and Tiffany


    Isabel Hernandez: I had a best friend since 6th grade (though we met in 3rd grade) and soon we added a new best friend in 7th. I really liked the fact that it was three instead of two, it gave us another person to trust. Her name was Tiffany and she was the athletic one in the group, Katherine was the smart one, and I was the video game geek. We were all different but we all shared anime and fantasy as a common interest. After a couple months went by I noticed that I barley got to hang out with them or Kat even. I started to make more plans with Kat but she declined most of them due to hanging out with Tiffany, it felt weird to ask if I could go so I didn't. Soon I asked her about it and she was telling me how she had a weird fear planted in her by Tiffany due to her bossy attitude, I tried my best to help her and that's when Tiffany and I stopped talking. Katherine was being peer pressured into staying away from me. This is where things got a little crazy, Kat and I had a volunteer job and Tiffany told Kat she was going to come to our job and fight me. I wasn't scared I gladly took the challenge, although nothing happened I talked to Kat about everything and we both agreed to not speak to her again. She was possessive of Kat and I felt bad because she had to be the one to hear all the negativity about me and then tell me. I wish I could have just took things into my own hands instead of having her be in the middle. -


    .: I was bullied in 5th grade, and still am in middle school. I was called anorexic, attention seeker,..etc. -


    Chloe: Im in 5th grade and theres a lot of gossip that i did these two really horrible things, but didn't do them and that day some really bad things had happened. I cried so long and so hard my eyes were burning. Sometimes girls will do really mean things, and it hurts others VERY badly, and if your one of those girls i have been affected, and i wont let it hurt my friends and you should stop and help others. Some people are affected more than others and it can hurt, ALOT. So don't be mean, help others. Please, those girls need you. -


    Jessica Wolf: Dear LiShan, I am so sorry for calling you short. I mean, you used to say it all the time, so I thought you wouldn't mind. Now I know that that hurt your feelings and I vow never to say it again. -


    Jacqueline: I'm so sorry for laughing and making fun of your jean size with the other girls in grade 8. i was so insecure and mean. i still think about it all the time. - Rosalind


    alora: i was in after school program she yelled at me and i rolled my eyes at her i gess no one is perfact after all im sorry i dident mean i hope your have a good time -
