Tiernan Heffron, a Year 11 Student, writes an original song on the effects of sites like AskFM and cyberbullying.
Tiernan commented “My song ‘Where do I belong’ is about how young people feel very low in life because of cyber bullying through sites like AskFM, and how they want to hide away and escape from everything that’s going on in their life. I want my song to remind people that they are not alone and that there are people who feel the same way”.
Judith Boyle, Education Work for Nexus NI said “This song is a great way to increase the awareness of the effects that cyberbullying can have on individuals. There is lots of help out there for young people, and I would encourage others to have the courage to speak out about this, and ask for help if needed from a parent or teacher. As Tiernan said, you are not alone.”
