Millie Bobby Brown is opening up about her experience being bullied when she was younger.
The Stranger Things star covers the May digital issue of Glamour UK, in which she opens up to British actor Orlando Bloom about how being bullied has impacted her life.
In the issue, the magazine’s first Activism edition, the 15-year-old actress recounts her difficult path to becoming an activist for young people’s rights.
"I was bullied at school back in England. So, it’s extremely important for me to speak out against bullying,” Brown shares. “I actually switched schools because of it. It created a lot of anxiety and issues that I still deal with today. I have dealt with situations both in real life and online that are soul-breaking and it genuinely hurts reading some of the things people have said."
