Teen Was Bullied For Being Ginger And She Dropped To Six Stone. But Now...

15-year-old Jasmine Green from Bedford, England is now getting back to her life after facing troublesome days.

When she was 11, people started taunting her because she had red hair and was mostly seen wearing gothic outfits. For being a ginger, bullies told her to kill herself and Jasmine started losing self-confidence. Skipping meals, she turned herself anorexic. Due to the eating disorder, she was dropped to a shocking 6th 6lbs. In this April, she collapsed for the third time and was rushed to the hospital. After receiving mental health treatments and other essential care, she has beaten eating disorder. Now she has continued her school after a long gap. She aims to be a doctor to help the people who suffer anorexia. 

Jasmine shares her life experience like this - Some of the kids would mock me for having red hair and used to tell me to kill myself. They said that I had no soul because I was ginger and that I should cut or hang myself which was really horrible. All of the bullyings left me with really low self-confidence and made me think I was overweight, so I started skipping meals.

After being released from hospital, she said - 'After a lot of hard work I want to put all of this behind me now so I can continue my life and in the future help other people by becoming a doctor. When my anorexia was bad I couldn't concentrate because I thought everyone was staring at me but now I'll finally be able to focus on my studies. Now I have so much more energy and I can't wait to start hanging out with my friends. It was really silly that I was bullied for being ginger, it shouldn't matter what colour hair you have - who you are as a person is the most important thing.

Bullying can really ruin people's lives because it makes them feel not good enough - I was lucky to get through this. I know I'm a much stronger person now that I am beating something like this.'
