HOLLA ON THE GO: “In year 11, a boy…”

In year 11 a boy in year 10 groped me as we were passing in the corridor. He was with a group of his friends. I don’t think he meant anything cruel by it though. He was just immature. And younger than me. Also, twice it’s happened where the same man on the bus tried … Continued
