A cyberbullied teen is being hailed a hero after posting an update on social media about being sexually assaulted by two strangers in the Philippines.
The victim, who goes by the pseudonym “Kaitlyn”, posted a photo of herself in a hospital bed, with her attacker in the background.
“I was on my way home from school and stopped at a gas station to get gas.
I was looking at the car and when I turned my head, I saw a man.
He was wearing a red shirt and red pants.
He grabbed my face and started hitting me on my face,” Kaitlyn wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.”
He was pushing me back and I felt the pain on my cheeks.
I tried to defend myself but he grabbed my neck and pulled me toward the car.
He pulled my pants down, my shirt and then his pants down to my ankles,” she added.
The girl is being praised for her bravery and her ability to post her story on social networking sites.
The Facebook post went viral on the social network, with many people praising the girl for being brave and reporting the attack.
Kaitlin, who identifies as a lesbian, told CNN Philippines she was initially unsure about the incident and initially thought the attacker was a boyfriend.
But after her friends and family told her the man was her attacker, she felt confident enough to share her story.
Katalyn said she has since become a target of online abuse after sharing her story, and is hoping the community can be more understanding of cyber bullying.
“We are all victims, no matter who we are.
We are all vulnerable,” she said.
“I was in a lot of pain, I couldn’t sleep and I was crying a lot.”
The teen, who has not been identified, said she had been bullied by two different boys, one in high school and one in middle school.
She said the boys were using her online identity to attack her for the first time, and after posting her photo on social networks, they took turns beating her.
“They told me I was a whore and they would kill me if I ever told anyone about this.
They called me a whore because I am a lesbian and they told me if they found out I was gay, they would beat me to death,” she told CNN.”
My friend told me, ‘I don’t think he wants to kill you, he’s not into it, he is into other women.'”
They started beating me with a belt, and they said they wanted to rape me.
“After she got home, she posted the picture of herself on Facebook to tell her friends she was safe.”
When I got home I went to the hospital, and I told my mother and my sister, and my brother, and then my mom and sister told my mom.
And they called my mom, and the hospital told them, and everyone was so happy.
“The hospital said, ‘Kait, this is Kait’s mom, this has happened,'” she said, “and I went back to school.”
The teenager said she felt lucky that her mom, a nurse, was able to intervene to protect her from the attack, and she also thanked the Filipinas government for its response.
“Thank you to the President and all the other people of the Philippines, we are safe,” she wrote.
“Thank you for making us feel like we are strong and strong enough.”
