What is cyberbullying?
Bullies almost everywhere
Cyberbullying can occur anywhere where people have internet access. Bullies will try to harass you every chance they get. And wherever there are bullies, there will be victims.
The story I want to share...
In my story, I was the:
It happened on...
Here's what happened
A friend of mine called Idris, was getting harassed in the groupchat because of his english being a little weak. There was mainly one bully, but others played along. I quickly got him and myself out of that chat. Then I made him understand what they were actually saying about him and told him to stay away from those people. He thanked me for helping him.
3 things I want you to know...
Cyberbullying can happen anywhere.
Know the differences between fake and real friends.
Do not try to pick a fight with bullies, just ignore.
What can you do?
I think we all know what we can do to stop cyberbullying, but we are just not brave enough to stand up for the victim. If we just take the courage to do something, we can save a person from depression or worse, suicide. Even though, we could be putting ourselves in harm's way. We just need to be brave enough to take a stand.

1. Freedom to share.
2. Where everything is familiar
3. Where everyone is respectful and supportive.
What I want adults to know
@parents, there are many ways to help your child(ren) without invading their privacy. You should check in with them to make sure they're doing alright.
@teachers, just because the kids can't fight the bullies, doesn't mean they're scared, they just don't want to get seen as a bully. They also don't want to deal with trouble.
