We all had that one person in school who made us go home crying. So it's no surprise that a girl's brilliant response to her school bully has gone viral after her mother posted a video of it on Facebook.

Four-year-old Siahj Chase from the Bahamas recalls the story of her bully in the clip, saying "A little boy said I look...ugly".

Her reply? "I didn't come here to make a fashion statement. I came here to learn."

"And the little boy said I look bad," she continues. "And I said, 'Did you look in the mirror lately? Bye bye, see you later, you're making me mad.'"

The video has so far been shared over 17,000 times and has captured the attention of news websites around the world, from South America to Europe.

Siahj - who goes by Cici - has "always been quick on her feet," her mother Sonya told The Huffington Post.

"Cici is a gem," she added. "She's sharp, very active, talkative."

"I read lots of the comments that people wrote and I just want to say thanks to everyone that said nice and encouraging things to and about her. I read some of them to Cici and she just smiles and giggles."

Watch Cici tell her story in the video below. She's our little hero of the week.
