Ok so this assignment this week, which is already turned in, so, it's not to extort work out of you. Lol. I just wanted an opinion on how does it come across? We will be working onit as a working thesis till the fifth week.
I want it to be funny and I wanted it to be attractive for younger (children), as well as older people. Please honestly tell me what you think. Thanks in advance. Now here it is:

When I started my childhood education, I had no idea that the classroom would be a miniature war zone. The attackers were mostly every other student in my class and the target was me! I was singled out for whatever reason. I don’t think I was very different from anyone else in the classroom. I didn’t dress any differently, like we had any choice; I mean we were in a catholic school, and we had to follow dress code, so we all wore the same thing. I don’t think I was ugly. I had certainly seen uglier. I was shy, however, but never awkward. I was very small for my age, so maybe it was like the pack of wolves, hunting, separating the “weak” from the rest of the herd to attack. Whatever the reason, I soon learned that in order to survive, I would have to become defensive. I would have to fight the terrorists who were supposed to be my peers. This experience with childhood education made me the fighter that I am today.

Dear Idyserenity,
I am not a writer, per say, however my one comment would be that your writing is very similar to a written version of someone speaking. That isn't what writing should be about, from my limited perspective.

Regards,
T

Written as speaking to a guidance counsellor could keep it in first-person narrative, if that's what you're going for. Or as a celebrity fighter giving an interview. Sounds like something like one of those.

All kinds of different tools for the writer. No one says you can't dare to try something different.
