Haley Moore used to be “so afraid” of going to school given the bullying was so relentless.
At its lowest point, her backpack and favored Justin Bieber hardpack were ruined after they were dowsed in water by bullies picking on her because of her size.
But refusing to be downtrodden and using golf as an escape mechanism, Moore turned her passion into her career.
