Tayla says bullying has made her life “a living hell” and that her school is doing nothing to protect her. Now she’s asking for your help.
“Other people in my class throw things at me and film it on their phones. They tell me they’re going to upload it to the net.”
People often describe high school as the best years of their lives. But for 12-year-old Queensland student, Tayla, it’s become “a living hell”.
Everyday her bullies shove her, insult her, tell her to commit suicide. And she’s had enough.
In a heartbreaking Change.org petition, the Dysart State High School student pleads for help to end the torment, to help her convince her school and the Queensland Government to step up and step in.
So far, more than 25,000 strangers have stood with Tayla, which puts her just 10,000 signatures shy of her goal.
This is her story:
“My name is Tayla and I’m starting this petition with the help of my mum,” she writes.
