What do you think…?

Posted: December 29, 2009 in Start Strong Austin


Alyssa is a sophomore. About three weeks ago, she met a guy on-line and they really “clicked.” After a while, he convinced her to send him pictures of herself without her shirt on. She felt uncomfortable, but did it anyway because she was afraid she would lose him if she didn’t.

A few days later, he tried to get her to meet him face-to-face alone at his house, but Alyssa told him she was not ready for that. He got angry at her and broke up.

The next day, Alyssa discovered that the photos she sent to him had been broadcast all over the school through people’s cell phones and MySpace pages. Her peers began to tease her, reject her, and call her names. Alyssa feels like she will never be able to put this incident behind her.


  • What advice would you give Alyssa?
  • How could this situation have gone differently?
  • Have you or someone you know even experienced something similar?
