  • It was at that moment that I realized that,

  • okay, wow, I am different.

  • A small comment in such a short period of time can stick with you.

  • Yeah, I was definitely picked on as a kid.

  • Oh yeah.

  • Look at me, of course I got picked on!

  • I think you always dream about going back to a situation, especially when it's recent,

  • and being able to say what you really wanted to say to the people that hurt you or tormented you.

  • When I was eight I was on the playground, and one of my friends told me I had elf ears.

  • Which isn't really even that mean, but it like stuck with me.

  • My response now would be, ever heard of Legolas?

  • I had to wear leg braces because I was pigeon-toed and I had bow legs.

  • And there was a new student in my class,

  • and the first thing out of her mouth that she said when she saw me was that I walk funny.

  • That I walk like a duck.

  • If by "duck" you meant "Mighty Duck",

  • then you are correct.

  • In fifth grade I was told that I have fat, wrinkly hands.

  • And, I'm not gonna lie, it's a little bit true.

  • Well you know what, fifth grade bullies?

  • I went to a palm reader in high school,

  • and she told me that all the wrinkles on my fat hands mean that I have wise hands.

  • Not fat wrinkly hands, wise hands.

  • I was wearing this like really red shirt,

  • and my sister said, you shouldn't wear red because it brings out your pimples.

  • People make fun of me for my hair all the time.

  • Just 'cause it grows up naturally.

  • Put the hate away, love yourself, and leave everybody alone.

  • I've always kind of had a baby face.

  • So it was my first day of middle school in a new school.

  • We're talking about what fake football jersey name you would have.

  • This kid said, hey, on the back of your jersey it should say "Little Bitch".

  • I came home in tears and said I wanted to go back to my old school.

  • A group of kids would call me "chinky eyes".

  • Somehow my eyes equated to being ugly,

  • and I didn't quite understand that it was just an ethnic difference.

  • I was overweight and I was depressed.

  • There's a certain member of my family that everybody is afraid of.

  • She just came after me.

  • Kept telling me I was fat, kept telling me to lose weight,

  • kept telling me I was fat.

  • I think the best I could do is be above all of it,

  • and the worst you can do is believe what they say.

  • I guess I would just say, "I don't believe you".

  • That stuck with me, and has made me not want to feel weak.

  • I ain't no bitch.

  • 'Cause I'm not.

  • I do what I want.

  • They might fear you, but I don't.

  • To anyone out there who's being picked on or bullied,

  • you can't change the way others think,

  • but you can control how you think about yourself.

  • When you're younger you just want to look like everybody else,

  • and when you get older we all want to look different.

  • There are other people out there who are just like you,

  • who are going through the same things.

  • And sometimes you can take a weakness and turn it into a strength.

  • Just a little bit of wisdom I got from these guys.

  • Boom, mike drop, what's up.

  • You're welcome, Internet.

  • That felt great.

It was at that moment that I realized that,
