16 Days Campaign 2020 - Day 5
Amanda, a 7th-grade student was approached online by a male stranger. He convinced her to flash her breasts while on a webcam. That one instance led to relentless cyberbullying and the threat of exposure. He contacted her on Facebook to get her to take part in a live sex show on camera. If she didn’t, he’d share the photo of her breasts with her friends.
When Amanda refused to give in, the stranger shared the photo online for the world to see. Soon enough, bullies contacted her and she couldn’t escape the cyberbullying. Tragically, Amanda’s second attempt to kill herself was successful, but she did leave a video telling the full story of what led to this point.
She was just 15 years old at the time.
