A teen girl living in County Durham, England, Chloe Robson, was feeling anxious about attending prom. Since the age of seven, Robson, who is now 16, has been bullied and tormented by the other students in her class for the way she talks and her appearance.
The abuse went from verbal to physical in middle school when other kids began throwing objects at her. Robson said this about the effects bullying has had:
The bullying had a bad effect – it made me feel left out and alone.
I had no-one to talk to about it and worried if I said anything it would get around – it will have a long-term effect on me
So it is no wonder that Robson would be nervous for prom and the treatment she would receive. That's when Robson's uncle, Grant Robson, decided to take action. As the leader of Bikes Against Bullies, the senior Robson rallied the troops and had 126 motorcycle riders escort his niece to prom.
The arrival made quite an impression!
