Teens share bullying tales in confession booth

One girl says the torment of being bullied made her suicidal and ultimately "ruined two years of my schooling."

Another girl took three showers a day in a futile attempt to appease classmates who jokingly insisted — day in, day out — that she smelled.

One boy remembers having been a bully and says, “I’m just disgusted with myself.”

These are some of the stories that emerged after the CBC News Network show Connect with Mark Kelley set up a video confession booth in a Quebec high school to encourage students to share their personal experiences with bullying.

This was done at a school in Quebec but were it to be done anywhere, I suspect, sadly, the stories would be all too similar.
