Bestselling Author takes on bullying

Ile Des Chenes journalist and author Marianne Curtis recently relayed her personal bullying survival story before a Legislative Committee with the Manitoba government.

On September 10, Curtis bravely recalled how she was tormented while attending school in Steinbach, Manitoba. After six years of physical assaults, sexual assault and emotional abuse, she was forced out of the public school system. For the next thirty years, she has successfully battled her way through recovery. Her memoir “Finding Gloria” is her personal survival and recovery story.

Curtis also recorded this Youtube video before her official presentation.
