… When I was a little girl, I experienced bullying from an older boy at school
~Erin Chambers (General Hospital)
Ms. Erin Chambers who plays feisty Irish lass, Siobhan’s Galway in General Hospital, offers her personal insight on bullying abuse from her own childhood. “Once I made the decision to share my troubles with others, it made life so much easier,” Chambers stated. Erin will be sharing her powerful thoughts on bullying with many of Hollywood’s influential women in the soap opera arena.
Here’s what she had to say:
“When I was a little girl, I experienced bullying from an older boy at school. It was very intimidating and made me feel helpless and nervous all the time. It took a lot of courage to tell my parents and teachers. Once I made the decision to share my troubles with others, it made life so much easier. It was as if I was carrying around a heavy backpack all on my own and I was finally able to shed some of the weight.
Being able to confide and tell someone else about what I was experiencing was the first step in overcoming the bullying. It helped me feel in control of my life and instilled me with confidence that I was definitely lacking.”
