Kristen is a ten year old girl who has been subject to prolonged emotional abuse. Verbally harrased by other children on a weekly basis, her mum has had no choice but to move her to a different school. Kristen is now shy and struggles to make friends. Her lunchtime involves sitting alone, as the other children either bully Kristen, or leave her isolated, not allowing her to join in. Kristen has been experiencing this for such a long time that her mum worries that Kristen has "lost the ability to understand when people are being emotionally abusive". After all of this Kristen continues to try and be friends with other kids, even asking to join them at lunch and sit with them on the bus. HOWEVER they continue to laugh at her and harrass her when she tries. Kristen's mum is completely lost, not knowing what to do - She's reached out to ICANIWILL to see if we can help break the cycle of bullying Kristen has fallen victim to.
Kristen is a bright, lively kid who is so kind and caring. We want to help her so she DOESN'T lose that childhood spark!
Kristen loves dolphins, so here at ICANIWILL we have come up with a plan to treat Kristen to a dolphin experience of a lifetime! We have been busy collaborating and planning and we think this wish will be one of the BIGGEST wishes yet!
