“I remember a time when I was in school and a large group of us, a girl gang, was hanging around and one of the girls in the group was annoying us,” she says.

“She did something we weren’t happy with and we turned her all on.

“We ostracized her and it got to the point that the teacher took us all into a room and asked if anyone wanted to apologize.”

“So stubborn”

Naga then went on to think back to her school days.

“I was so stubborn and so stubborn …

“… and I said, ‘No, I don’t want to apologize to her, I don’t want to be her friend anymore.’

“I never quite understood why I was so stubborn about it and not thinking about how much it would hurt you and whether it would bother you.

“It’s pretty hard to admit you’ve been a tyrant,” she admitted after a moment of silence.

“For me, I always stick to one of these life mottos, be nice, and to know that it wasn’t you …

“It’s not a good feeling.”

Naga then told the audience that she had made up with the girl in question and admitted that she was bullied as well.
