How to build confidence for my looks?

I'm going into high school in September so I want to build confidence so people don't put me down so much like they did I junior high. I am strong enough not to do any of that stupid stuff like cutting my rists. Girls don't really call me ugly but guys to allot they say I'm ugly as the f word. Im Italian and they call me Arab and Mexican. I'm sick of getting bullied and put down. My mom didn't even say good job on my report card because I have 2 Cs and 3As and a B. My parents don't live together and no one sits with me when I eat or anything. I'm a only child. My mom mentally abuses me and my Dad doesn't care. So that's were I get from being sad most of the time. I'm only happy at my grandparents but my mom doesn't let me go over there.

Get to know yourself, and KNOW that YOU are important, regardless of what people think. Sometimes its hard, and sometimes people dont understand, but know that you are something special.
Good luck

Well the sad part is people tend to believe insults quicker than they do compliments, your best bet would be to just ignore any insult you hear.

Confidence is not a look. It's more of an expression/feeling. Just know ur confident and it'll show on its own. Elude it.

First of all good job with your grades and second of all forget what people call you they're just stupid jerks. From the picture you have you are beautiful and don't forget it. I know someone has probably already told you this but just take a day at a time. But most of all be yourself and don't do anything that isn't you. Hope you feel better.

Always believe in yourself. Anyone who puts you down- even if they seem popular - is insecure themselves. Most very successful people were the picked on as teenagers. There is only one you. Dont let losers dim your glow.

The strength you will gain is through your spirit. You have gotten this far in your life, don't give up. The boys who put harmful thoughts into your mind probably don't have anything else better to do. Ignore them. I'm Native American and people think I am Asian. Don't be affected by it. Just tell them what you really are, even if it has to a habit. As for the rest of your life . . . think of this: Scars last forever, Wounds don't. Be proud. But don't become jaded. . . . . Besides, the kids in school might have grown up over the summer.
Hope this helps.
