25-year-old Aucklander Jesse Greenslade has written an open letter to theHerald about being bullied as a child and teenager. Jesse says he was a target while at school because he did not fit in with the social norms. These days, Jesse works fulltime as an office manager for NetSafe in Newmarket and says life is “quite good”. Certainly better than the torment he felt as a teenager. In writing this open letter, he wants to reach out and help others: “It is important to ask for help, but it is the hardest thing to do. You don’t have to suffer in silence.” – Monica Holt
