(#pestverhaal)

Rosalie sits in her room and talks about why she sometimes doesn't feel safe even at home. She has been bullied at school and online and is struggling with the consequences.

The mockery and physical violence she experienced at school led 13-year-old Rosalie to consider suicide. When the situation eased somewhat among her classmates, the bullying moved to social networks. Even her own room ceased to be a haven for her – every time she looked at her cell phone, she was worried about who was writing to her. She doesn't like to talk about the difficult experiences, but she finds support in similar stories shared by teenagers with whom she can connect online. All the stories lead to the same consequences: lowered self-esteem, decreased trust in others, loneliness. Will sharing her story help Rosalie find herself again and allow her to feel that somewhere in the world there is a safe place for her?
