I would only show a close up on video since I knew how to maneuver and hide them, I would always have long braids/wigs to hide, some make up artist used to tell me “you have a beautiful jawline” I used to ignore because I thought ni chocha tu to make me feel good.

Awinja goes on to add,

I later realised this is something I cannot change, and therefore I chose to Embrace them, by donning short hair or show them more.

Clearly people may make you hate some part of yourself so you grow up knowing, your forehead is ugly or Arms or legs etc, what I can say is, DO NOT ALLOW!

Those comments to get to you because they will be affecting you as you carry them, so here Iam accepting each and every “Flaw” Pole pole❤️ #wcw

‘They wished I was the one who had died in the accident’ Mwanyigha

Sheila Mwayigha has opened up on being a victim of online trolls and bullies to an extent of some wishing her death.

Mwanyigha in an interview with BBC says that at some point there were rumors that she was seeing a certain CEO yet it was not true.

‘I remember one particular article about a CEO who was spotted sneaking into my house. If you come to where I live you know there is no way you are sneaking in.

It was mean, it was awful.

You go for meetings and people are looking at you thinking you have what you have because you are having a relationship with this person.

Mwanyigha also adds that she was also attacked online by someone she did not know.

There was a time there was an attack in Egypt and I sent my condolences and one person attacked me saying that I should have been among those who died.

Adding that people like me did not deserve to live.

I felt so vulnerable. I met my friends after that because I did not know if the person who had said that might be in the place we were at.

It can be tiring to keep proving yourself to people because it is a waste of time.

I spoke a lot of sheng’ and some people thought I didn’t behave how I looked which is actually an insult coming to think of it now. “In my first year of High School, I remember people threatening to pour acid on my face, saying I looked like a frog, others saying I am recruiting guys into some demonic stuff… There was a lot that was said.

She Gets The Last Laugh! Teenager Bullied For Having a Big Forehead Gets Crowned a Beauty Queen

A female student who was taunted by bullies who called her ugly for having a large forehead has had the last laugh – after being crowned a beauty queen.

Shola Harriman, 18, from Braunstone, Leicester, lost all her confidence after cruel classmates began tormenting her when she started secondary school seven years ago.

One lunchtime evil bullies even threw a bowl of pasta in her face and pulled her hair and as well as mocking her for having a ‘big forehead’.

Shola moved to Bosworth College after a year, where things got a lot better. She made new friends and her confidence slowly came back

Shola was left depressed and skipped school for two months because she says teachers did nothing to help her during her 12 months of torment.

But two years later she was given a confidence boost when she was scouted to enter Miss Teen UK in 2014. And after entering the regional legs of Miss Great Britain this March she was stunned to be crowned Miss Leicestershire on May 20.

Shola, who lives with beautician mum Tarnya Parrott, 39, and sisters said: ‘I was just over the moon: ‘I was so excited with all my family and friends around me, but I really didn’t expect to win it.’

It just shows how self-confident I am now. I was really depressed when I was 13, but I want this to prove to everyone you can get through it.’

Shola, who is doing her A levels and looking to study law at Leicester University next year, was picked on when she moved to Fullhurst School in Braunstone.

She said: ‘I think it’s because I was the new girl in school. Nobody really knew me so I was on my own all the time and an easy target. At first I was just excluded from everything, then it was mainly verbal abuse.’

‘One lunchtime a girl threw pasta in my face and pulled my hair. But other than that it was just calling me names, like ugly and stupid. They used to say I have a big forehead and it really affected me because I was so young.

‘It went on for about a year, but the school did nothing. A lot of people were getting bullied there and I just don’t think they knew how to deal with it.

She continues: ‘I didn’t want to go to school. I wouldn’t get out of bed and skipped classes for about two months. Mum would drop me off at the school gates and I’d pretend to go, but sneak off into town. I didn’t want to make friends for so long after.

Now after winning the competition held in Leicester, last week, Shola will now compete with 80 other beauty queens for Miss Great Britain.

Shola said: ‘I only entered Miss Leicestershire for a laugh. But now I’ve won it I want to help other people who went through what I went through. I’m very shocked, and I just hope I can be a good role model.’

Heartbroken Mom Says Bullies Who Drove Son to Suicide ‘Won’

In most cases of bullying, parents feel powerless. Powerless to stop the torment. Powerless to help their kids feels safe. That is the pain that Florida mom Shaniqua Hawkins felt in the weeks and days leading up to her son’s death. She says that her 14-year-old son Lamar killed himself because of the merciless torment of school bullies. “They won because he took his life,” she said.

It’s a chilling thought, to be sure. They reportedly picked on Lamar for years because of one reason — his small frame due to medical issues early in life. Hawkins says her boy was physically and emotionally abused at school. “Many students would just be downright cruel to him,” she told reporters.

In a few of the many attacks, he was allegedly pushed down the stairs, knocked out of his chair, and mocked at lunch.

It’s heartbreaking to know that your child is enduring this kind of treatment. Bullying is one of the biggest problems school children face. I know a lot of parents still find that hard to believe. In their mind, how could it be as bad as people say? But stories like that of Lamar are far too common to dismiss this as anything but a tragic epidemic.
