Anti-bullying Assembly

While listening to the assembly, I have learned that many teenagers have been bullied with four different types of bullying: verbal, physical, social, and cyber.

For my essay, I received an B+/A_ I was actually surprised in receiving that grade. I may have received it because I used examples and references from the stories and in class. I kinda didn't agree with it because I am not very good when it comes to writing essays. I feel like I have earned a B or C mostly because I still haven't posted some posts for my blog.
