On Wednesday April 17th my class and I are going to see Jeremy Dias speak about his experiences with bullying and how he came so far and is so positive to this day.
Jeremy Dias was born in Edmonton, Alberta until he moved to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, which is where he attended high school. When Jeremy was in high school he started and lead a bunch of clubs including “Stop Racism” and “Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving.”
I think Jeremy Dias is making a difference in this world because he was bullied for being gay and didn’t let it get to him and he was being made fun for having a different colored skin tone.
Personally I think people who make fun of people are totally rude and disrespectful and have no idea what they are saying and how it makes people actually feel inside. So think before you speak because it can really hurt somebody and if you keep on saying it to a person they may actually start to believe it.
