Lauryn is a 14 year old girl with a diagnosis of ADHD, ASD, Anxiety and a Non-Verbal Learning disorder. She is constantly bullied by her peers, both face-to-face and online. Every day there is an incident where by Lauryn is teased by others. She often cries at night about why she is so different from the other girls.
On one occasion a group of girls made a video and posted this on SNAPCHAT to all her peers pretending to be her, putting their hair in a high pony tail like she likes to wear it, saying "Look at me I am Lauryn and I have no friends and I am special". They made fun of her and called her horrible names. This video was also shared online for others to laugh at. Only recently Lauryn was horribly told by these bullies to go and kill herself... Lauryn doesn't understand why the bullies are so relentless, being brought to tears, crying "Mum, look what they have done, why are they doing this to me? I am so embarrassed".
Lauryn has a dream to be a special needs teacher. She loves helping others and would love to feel confident and make some friends.
