“I used to think I was the ugliest person on the planet.
I believed the bullies when they told me that I’d never matter to anyone.
They said no one would ever fancy me. The boys picked on me, and my friends didn’t stick up for me.
I know it sounds pathetic, but honestly I felt so ugly. I spent hours on You Tube looking at how to do my makeup.
But then I came across a You Tuber who spoke about her feelings of being ugly. She made so much sense and I realised I wasn’t on my own.
I don’t think I need to change myself. I spoke to the counsellor at college, and I’m working on building my confidence .
