14-year-old Carleigh O’Connell had something done to her that no girl would like! SHE rose above it and I wanted to share her story!
At school, people started to tell Carleigh that someone spray painted, “Carleigh’s ass” on a cement barrier in her hometown of Wall, New Jersey, for everyone to see.
As to be expected, the teen was “upset” at first, but she wanted “to make something good out of it.”
In order to make an impact, Carleigh turned to social media to share her story. She wanted other people struggling with self-image issues to know they are not alone.
She posted a photo of herself posing next to the rock on her Instagram and had her mom share the photo on Facebook in hopes of it going viral.
