Hollywood actress and the Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana stated that she had been bullied in school as she used to speak in English and didn't know any other language then.
Zoe Saldana said that she had been highly traumatised by this and had to visit a therapist to get rid of this problem.
"It was a very traumatising time for me because I didn't know how to stand up for myself. I was never equipped, trained or taught to defend myself." Said Saldana.
"My mother never raised me believing that I was different, so the moment me and my sisters started getting attacked, the shock was the first reaction." Added the actress.
Zoe Saldana also stated that bullies can actually cause a lot of harm to one's confidence and make irreparable damage.
"Bullies can reach a depth within you that may cause irreparable damage. There were years that I felt ashamed of myself, thinking, 'I should have known better, I should have always stood up for myself." Said the actress.
However, the actress said she went for therapy to get rid of the trauma she had developed during her childhood.
"Therapy? F*** yes. Whenever I've found myself in a rut and tried bouncing ideas off people close to me and nobody gave me a good reference for what I should be doing, the best thing was to call my therapist." Saldana explained.
