When I Worry About Things Being a bully: Ariana's story

This clip uses the real first-person testimony from Ariana, a young Albanian girl whose family valued boys higher than girls, to create an intimate and direct tone. The open and honest narration will help students develop a sense of empathy with her and recognize the parallels with their own lives. In the film, Ariana relates how her family background led her to feel a sense of inferiority and caused her to seek to subjugate others to regain a measure of control. As she talks about what it felt like to be a bully in her daily life, the animation creates a visually emotive representation of how she felt, to help students experience it directly. Warning: contains scenes that some viewers might find upsetting.
