Brandon Walsh is starting to make a name for himself on social media but he wanted to share something personal with his followers. Walsh spoke about his time in high school and how he was bullied. Growing up he was extremely skinny, had painful acne, and had almost no friends.

Towards the end of high school, he started to come out of his shell after connecting with fellow students over video games. Soon Brandon started going to the gym and gaining more and more self-confidence. He's in a much better place these days and hopes his story inspires others.
