About Eduardo

The @EndBullyinNow account was created on September 3, 2011. It was created by Eduardo, whom at the time was 13 years old, to help anyone struggling through bullying, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, or through any dark issue. @EndBulyinNow follows those who follow him to give them the opportunity to talk whenever they need to talk to someone. As years have gone by, multiple people have tweeted and messaged him that the @EndBullyinNow account as helped them feel better and has even been told that this account is the reason why they are still alive. These type of messages this account has received has made Eduardo to tweet every single day on @EndBullyinNow in hopes to make more people realize that life will get better and to spread awareness about not only bullying but what bullying can lead to.. Now being 15 years old, Eduardo is more determined to help more people and hopefully even inspire them with his story and get his word across more people that bullying is a serious When Eduardo was 13 years old he was going through stuff that made him think that giving up was the only solution to his problems. When he wondered if there were others out there struggling through the same issues as him, he decided to make the @EndBullyinNow account. When he found out that he wasn't the only person who was feeling suicidal because of being bullied while at the same time having to deal with his parents splitting apart, he found an escape. Almost a year later after creating the account and do much better, he decided to share his story with his followers (http://www.twitlonger.com/show/ibnqi4). As time went by, people tweeted and messaged him telling him that his story has inspired them and others said it has helped them realize that one day it will get better. Eduardo who runs the @EndBullyinNow account, used his experiences and struggles to help others, not only going the same stuff as him, but helping those who are just going through a dark time.
