I was the ugly, fat girl and he was the hot guy at school. Who would have thought that we’d end up going to the prom together?
High-school was a nightmare for me. I was constantly bullied by the girls. One day we were rehearsing for a school play and I was in my costume with its pavonine wings. As I fluttered about the stage, the entire class erupted into laughter and one girl yelled, “Fat peacock.” Humiliated, I ran out.
