THE 14-year-old Rockhampton victim filmed being beaten in a video which went viral is determined not to let her alleged attacker get her down.
The footage, shot on Tuesday, shows the Glenmore State High School student's former best friend bashing her in an underpass near the Rockhampton school.
The video was initially posted on Facebook, before the social justice group We Are Anonymous uploaded it to YouTube.
The graphic video shows the alleged attacker, also 14, walking towards the victim.
She begins screaming obscenities as she challenges the other girl to fight.
As the victim tries to walk away, her attacker unleashes a flurry of punches.
With people crowding around, the victim can't escape.
Speaking after the alleged attack the victim said was shocked no one came to her aid.
"Watching someone hit me like that and no one rush in made me feel sick," she told The Morning Bulletin.
But many of the people who watched the video on Facebook and YouTube before it was taken down yesterday have buoyed the teen's spirits.
She has been inundated with messages of support from across Australia.
"It makes me feel good to know there are people out there who care about me," she said. "I'm not going to show I'm scared of her."
The youth's mother said she was heartened by the number of people contacting her daughter to show their support.
The attack left the teen bruised and shocked, but with no serious injuries.
The victim's mother alleged the attacker would not leave her daughter alone. She said she came to her home later that evening and challenged her to fight, yelling "it's not over".
