I asked them why they hated me so much. They just replied simply that I was 'Fat'. They would play back me singing on their phones and make fun of it. They would prank call me and I got so many death threats online I was afraid to step out of the house. I deleted all of my Twitter and Facebook accounts because of the hate. I would cry myself to sleep every night. I would sometimes try to make myself ill so I wouldnt have to go to school. It just was not fair. My name is Ameila and welcome to my life.

I always wanted to be a singer from an early stage. Putting my feelings into a song and singing it was the only way I could get away from the bullies. When I was at school I always wanted to go on 'American Idol', to get away from the bullies and live my dream. When ever they were calling me names I would think in my head This year I can get away from it, this year. But that year never came. Until 'X Factor' came along and my idol Demi Lovato was one of the judges. I knew I had to audition.

They tried to put me down. They said I would never be able to get anywhere. Thats why I really wanted to do this to show myself that I can do something and I am good at something. I decided to sing Demi Lovatos 'Skyscraper'. I will perform it with all my heart, putting all my stress and emotion over those past few years into the beautiful inspirational song. I am strong and I will do this. I can show those bullies, I am actually worth something and I am special. And thats why im standing on this stage right now, living my dream and staying strong.
