Teens share bullying tales in confession booth [View all]

One girl says the torment of being bullied made her suicidal and ultimately "ruined two years of my schooling."

Another girl took three showers a day in a futile attempt to appease classmates who jokingly insisted day in, day out that she smelled.

One boy remembers having been a bully and says, Im just disgusted with myself.

These are some of the stories that emerged after the CBC News Network show Connect with Mark Kelley set up a video confession booth in a Quebec high school to encourage students to share their personal experiences with bullying.

This was done at a school in Quebec but were it to be done anywhere, I suspect, sadly, the stories would be all too similar.
