Anna, Age: 41
“I was so full of anger after being bullied, abused and humiliated for years, but I didn’t have the courage to do anything about it. Tony gave me the strength to fight back.”
I was born in this country. I have lived in this country my whole life, working hard, paying taxes, but during the last ten years it has changed dramatically. I look a bit different from the normal folks so I have started getting really bad treatment from people. Because the way I look I have been spat on, insulted verbally and physically so many times I cannot remember.
Last night I experienced the worst physical abuse of my life, for no reason. I feel so humiliated, betrayed, my whole body is aching. I am angry but I have not found the courage to fight back. I was so lost, but Tony came and encouraged me to go ahead with my plan to show people.
