When Whitney Kropp’s classmates voted her onto homecoming court, she simply couldn’t believe it. Her celebrations were short-lived, however, when she learned that her nomination was a prank. But instead of succumbing to suicidal thoughts, the brave teen fought back, and it was the pranksters who ended up with egg on their faces.
Whitney Kropp comes from West Branch, Michigan, and in 2012 she was just an average 16-year-old who attended Ogemaw Heights High School. Still, Whitney considered herself somewhat of an “outcast” and felt different to many of her classmates.
Initially, this may have been down to what was seen as her unusual height. “I was bullied as a kid for being tall, but then I wasn’t picked on until high school,” she later explained. What happened in high school? Well, it seems that her peers didn’t always welcome her individuality.
