Points to Ponder:
5:15 "If you’re scared on the inside, you'll need to be on the front foot […] and be assertive first […] because it reminds you that you've got power too."
7:18 "Bullying is just someone struggling on the inside and clutching for attention, power and control."
14:25 "...at the end of the day, as you grow, you have resources, you have police, teachers, parents, friends and strangers that would react to protect you immediately."
16:00-17:00 "equip yourself with support so you won't get intimidated easily.
