When Victoria got to seventh grade, things took a turn for the worse. Bullying, gossiping, and the overall hostility of Viki’s classmates led to bouts of depression, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and the constant emotions of loneliness and emptiness. The combination of these mental illnesses and emotions led to an eventual suicide attempt on January 14th, 2013. After recovering from her injuries, Viki has since made it her mission to help those around her who are in similar situations. From an insider’s seat, Victoria tells an insightful and powerful story that rings with pain, hope and courage.
