15-Year-Old Girl Commits Suicide After Intense Bullying
March 31, 2010
Phoebe Prince moved to Massachusetts from Ireland in time for the beginning of school last fall. Imagine how nervous she must have been, coming to a new country, and on her first day to a new school, especially a new high school.
No one could have known or predicted how hard it would be for her. Or how hard it would be for her younger sister, who came home from school and found her 15-year-old sister body hanging from her closet.
What could have caused or led to this tragic ending?
It’s interesting that as a female Phoebe was targeted for her relationship with this boy. Was her boyfriend targeted too? No reports indicate that this was the case, so why was Phoebe targeted alone?
Imagine the deep desperation Phoebe must have felt to end her own life. And to think that this all started because she had a brief dating relationship with an older guy. Were these girls harassing her because they were jealous of the new girl who landed a football player? Or was it just simply because she was the new girl in school? For whatever reason, some students did not approve, and so they campaigned against Phoebe both in school and online, using Facebook and other social networking sites.
