She’s speaking out!
Sydney Hightower is defending claims she experienced bullying after her yearbook photos went viral on Monday night.
A Bachelor fan took to Twiteer Monday night to share photos from Sydney’s high school yearbook. In the pics, she is seen winning a beauty pageant and being picked as an “upperclassmen top beauty.”
“I was also on the cheer team in middle school and in many clubs in highschool. You’ll do anything you can to fit in, and I tried.”
“I won pageants because of my ‘looks’ and I was in clubs because I wanted a scholarship to get into college . Not because I was accepted by my peers.”
“Any one from my high school want to pull out the videos of girls stuffing my locker with Oreo cookies, vandalizing my home, shoving me in the hall ways?” she continues.
“Teachers literally referring to me as a halfbreed? Calling my mother the worst names I’ve ever heard in my life? I doubt that.”
“Setting the record straight. I’ve been through so much from the town I grew up in and will not allow my story, or others to be diminished because of one of the same girls, with the same mindsets as the people who terrorized me. Not happening.”
