One of the hardest things to do to a bully is to stand up to them.
Which makes this little boy’s brave actions here all the more inspirational.
Jake, a child with autism, confronted the bullies in his class by speaking out in front of his whole class.
Jake’s amazingly brave speech was filmed as part of The Bully Project, a social action campaign to stop bullying.
"I don’t think you guys see me for me,” Jake says in the short video. “I think you guys see me as a big target. You guys are always leaving me out of stuff ... never paying attention to me or anything I say."
“I want to try to be your friend, but you don’t try to be mine,” he adds, “and that really makes me feel  bad."
Since the filming of the video, Jake said he’s doing much better, and has even made lots of new friends.  
“Bullying has had a big impact on my life, but since the movie I’ve made a lot of friends,” said Jake.
“For other kids with autism, if you're getting bullied, try and tell them to stop and not give a reaction. If that doesn’t work, go to an adult.
"It might seem hard 'cause we can’t handle stress as well as other kids, but you will get through it and you’ll be awesome. Actually you already are!” said the brave little boy.
