Stephanie (Stef) Figueiredo

This 14 year old from Ontario, Canada was sick of the bullying. She wanted to make a statement that she is NOT these labels; she is a PERSON. She is Stef.

She says, “I made this gif because I was sick and tired of losing myself in all the labels. I hated being made fun of because of the way I look and my sexuality. I knew in my heart that I was a good person. So why did it matter what I looked like? Why did it matter who I loved? This was for all those kids out there getting picked on and bullied so badly, because you have a name. You have a place in this world and it is so much better than what you are going through now. So stay strong, because you are beautiful. ”
