Bullied schoolgirl Sinead Taylor posted a video diary on YouTube in June this year. In it she talks of how she was bullied as a tomboy, what she did to change her appearance to fit in - and some of her darkest moments. She says she would self-harm, but gives advice to others about overcoming abuse.
