Heartbreaking diary entries of a partially deaf girl who claims bullies hung her from a tree with a skipping rope have been revealed by her mother.
Amber Yoon, 10, was allegedly strung up by her neck in the playground of Queen of Apostles Catholic School in Perth late last month. On Tuesday, taking a stand against the bullies, Amber's mother, Belinda, shared the diary entries that alerted her to her daughter's tormentors months ago.
10-year-old Amber has been in and out of hospitals her entire life, but mother Belinda is worried that this is what could break her daughter's spirit. 'I can't get off my mind why won't my 'friends' won't (sic) play with me,' the young girl wrote in a new diary after ripping out her previous entries. 'And haven't been treating me not (sic) very nice. 'Pray for me please.'
On top of heart-wrenching messages, Amber would draw herself and label herself as the 'weird girl'. She wrote that other children would not sit with her, claiming they would ignore her if she tried to interact with them in the playground. Her nine-year-old brother, Hunter, who also attended the school, told his mother he had repeatedly seen Amber sit alone.
