Bullied Teen Gets New Nike Sneakers From Classmates

Playing Bullied Tennessee Teen Gets Warm Welcome and New Nikes at High School

A 15-year-old Tennessee boy was surprised with gifts from his classmates after they learned he'd been bullied. 

Azzy Robinson was the target of bullying a few years ago and it tore him apart. "[It] made me feel like I was worthless and didn't really mean anything to anyone," Robinson told Inside Edition. 

His mom, Traci Robinson, said Azzy became "reclusive and would sleep all the time."

But all that changed when Azzy switched to a new school, LaVergne High School. 

His new classmates were aware that he'd been bullied, so they wanted to do something nice for him. In a touching moment captured on video, they surprised Azzy with presents they all chipped in to buy.

"We got you some stuff because of how generous you are and everything you do," one student tells Azzy in the video. 

He struggles to open the box, then bursts into tears when he sees the brand-new pair of Nike sneakers inside. 

But that wasn't all. Another classmate gave him new clothes. 

"Those tears were pure joy," Azzy said. "Almost proud to be me for once because they wanted to do something for me like that.
