NBC’s ‘Making It’ helps Mississippi teen contestant deal with bullying

His high school years were some of the toughest times Eagan Tilghman had ever gone through.

While some can look back on their high school years and talk about the fun times, the Meridian, Mississippi, teen, who was recently a part of the NBC reality show “Making It,” will never get to share those memories.

“I was bullied really, really bad when I was in high school. People were just heartless and cruel to the point where I eventually just had to drop out because I couldn’t be around it anymore,” he said.

Eagan’s father, Todd Tilghman took it upon himself to go to the high school’s administration to express his concerns, but he felt it wasn’t enough and that they failed him. By dropping out of high school at 17, Eagan, now 19, said he finally found peace.

“I’ve always struggled with what I went through in high school, so it was nice for this show to come along and I could show all the people that doubted me and said I wasn’t worth anything, that you can go through something like that and still come out on top,” he said.
