CONROE, Texas -- Taylor Perkins, 9, is a recent victim of bullying. Her close friend Jose was also bullied due to his disabilities.
Taylor said. "I cried because I didn't want to go to school. I kept getting called short and people kept making fun of me and it was making me feel really bad."
For Taylor, the bullying set her on a course to advocate for victims. She decided to make a video to reach out to other victims of bullying. Her own motto is, "I got your back!"
On YouTube, the video quickly gathered thousands of views.
No words are spoken in the video. Taylor lets her signs do the talking. The video can be viewed here.
Since Taylor took her stand, the bullying has stopped. Taylor's mom couldn't be more happy.
Ashley Bierwirth, Taylor's mom, said, "I got picked on in school. I struggled a lot. I never found my voice and so for my 9-year-old to step up for all these people when I couldn't, it's just overwhelming and amazing."
Taylor just wants everyone to know that we're all special in different ways. If you're a victim of bullying, don't worry, Taylor's got your back.
