    "Almost a billion viewers across the planet know him as the Star Wars Kid, but they’ve never heard him speak, until now.

    Ghyslain Raza was a normal high-school student in small-town Quebec back in 2002, a shy 14-year-old who liked to make videos. In 2003, classmates posted one of those videos on the Internet without his knowledge–in it, Raza wields a makeshift light saber, clumsily imitating a Star Wars Jedi knight.


    The video went viral, and the Trois-Rivières teen became one of the earliest and highest-profile victims of a massive cyberbullying attack, one that played out among classmates and strangers online.


    “What I saw was mean. It was violent. People were telling me to commit suicide,” the now-25-year-old recalls."

    I thought he was going to have lost alot of weight and bulked up in muscle. If someone were to make an embrassing video of me like that, I'd be changing myself and use it as a wake up call.

    He channelled it into his law studies.
