Bad Teacher Lebo Nelspruit Participant

You can talk what you want, say what you want, you are not gonna change me ‘cause this is who I am. This is who I am. This is who I am.

It was a hurtful, painful, stressful, and depressive time in my life. I didn’t enjoy matric like the other kids. I was harassed by a teacher and this person made my life hell. So much so that I didn’t pass matric the way that I expected myself to. I could have had better scores if I wasn’t under so much stress.

Hi readers… I’m Lebo. I am a gay guy who is proud of herself. I am a humble person who is always happy. I love music and I love to dance. I come from the Freestate province in South Africa but now I live in Mpumalanga. I want to tell you about the story of my life as a student.

I am happy that I am out of that school now. I don’t have stress or hurt. I enjoy my life.

From the time that I was very little I always liked wearing girls clothes. And, it was not a problem. Until I attended Ithabiseng Secondary School no one cared about the way that I dressed. I like wearing earrings, weaves, and mini skirts. But, when I started matric at the age of sixteen, things became challenging.
