How To Stop Bullying: A Personal Story
“I was bullied as a kid and I had low self-esteem because of it. I was made fun of because of my weight and it just sort of escalated.” Carrie Severson spent eight long years of her childhood being harassed, bullied and severely depressed. “I had to leave my hometown, discover who I was and figure out a way out of the darkness on my own.”
Part of the journey in escaping that darkness was empowering herself to continue moving forward in life and making some bold choices. 5 years ago she left her stable 9 to 5 job to launch the non-profit Severson sisters www.seversonsisters.org and SuperGirl Club.
Severson says she went from talking about the person she wanted to be to actually being that person.
