This teenager Hannah had a bullying incident at school that resulted in her having to shave her head. Like any teenage girl Hanna loved her hair. The 15-year-old was outside of Harker Heights High School when when a boy came up behind her and poured super glue on her head. The chemical glue immediately began to burn her scalp.
Her parents got a call from her friends where they learned she was taken to hospital, where doctors said she had a first-degree chemical burn on her scalp.
Unfortunately, she had to remove her hair. “I realized I lost my favorite thing about me. I loved my hair,” Hannah told KDH News. “My hair was the only thing I liked about myself, honestly. I lost it for no reason.”
Christian Grimmer her dad and also a retired soldier , was furious with what he says is an absence of action by school staff. Since the incident, the boy has received an in-school suspension and the school district said it would respond “in accordance with state law, board police and the student code of conduct.”
Her dad says he wants to see the boy transferred to another school for what he did to his kid.
The bullying does not sit well with Hannah’s mother, Jessica, either. She made a Facebook page and posted about the tormenting occurrence alongside photos of her girl’s new hair style.
Since then, Hannah has received an outpouring of support from people all over the world and from those closer at home.
When Nikki a hairdresser saw the photos of Hannah’s hair, she offered to give her a hair cut for free. “Today I got to do something I’m proud of. I fixed a young girls hair who had something traumatic happen to her at school,” Nikki wrote. “Her hair had to be shaved on one side, so I made the best of a bad situation.”
For Hannah, the situation she went through makes her want to help other people. And put a stop to the bullying “There are people who couldn’t stand up for themselves but they talk to me about it. It makes me want to help. It’s amazing how many people are supporting me.”
The family says that they have gotten a call from the school board telling the family that the issue has been resolved and that it is safe for Hannah to go back to school.
