Sofia Carson Opens Up About Being Bullied In School

If you’re in school and being bullied, Sofia Carson knows exactly how you feel.

The 26-year-old Perfectionists and Descendants 3 actress is opening up about her personal experience with her own past bullies – and they were mean enough for her to switch schools.

“I didn’t feel cool by any means growing up,” Sofia told J-14 in a recent interview. “I was a nerd in school. I wore little glasses, always had my hair up in a ponytail, was very clumsy and loved to sing and dance. I just never felt like I belonged. I got bulled quite a bit. There was a group of mean girls who always picked on me. They thought I was weird and they used to make fun of me.”

She continued, “It was really hard for me to deal with everything. In seventh grade, I left that school and ended up going to a different one.”

Sofia adds though that changing schools, although really nerve-wrecking, was the best thing for her.

“I wasn’t sure if people were going to be nice or not. But thankfully they were and I ended up having a really good experience there and I made really good friends.”
