The ten-year-old has been receiving messages of love from around the worldhttps://www.facebook.
"I went in my school's talent show," she explains. "When I won it, all my bullies came up to me and said how much they loved my performance – even though they'd been talking behind my back.
"They were saying I wasn't going to win and that I was really, really bad at singing."

"It got to the point where Mum had to take me to the hospital because I couldn't make a 10-minute walk to school. It was very bad."
The teenager then sought help from doctors and psychologists.
"I wanted to be happy like everyone else," she says. "I wanted to be able to eat food and just enjoy it."

"I have talent," she declares. "I know that I can get very far in my life, and I can do whatever I want to do. No amount of negative words is going to stop me from seeking my happiness."
