So I am 13 years old and I started facing street harassment when I was 12. It scares me because the older I get, the more I hear those kind of comments. It is always about my body and when I hear those comments I get really scared and I fear saying something because I don’t know how they will react. I started watching these experiments on YouTube and now I realize how much this happens in the world. It’s the scariest when you’re such young age because you don’t know how to react, you don’t know if you should say something or not. Most of the time when I go somewhere it is with my friends or family, but when I have to go home or go to school that’s when they harass me. This is starting to become like a fear and now I’m scared that these things will happen again and I am so young and I feel like I don’t deserve this. I’m trying to find help because I don’t know what to do when these things happen.
Location: In the mall and in town
