For those of you who don’t know, I was severely bullied most of my childhood…from mean girls in school, to bullying via the internet: I’ve been through it all.
When I started blogging, I never intended to openly speak about my issues, or start a program like MINT. It wasn’t until I realized the effect that bullying and social media have on young adults that I began to do my research into how we can alter the way young adults view themselves due to the internet.
I’ve teamed up with Bridg-it, an anti-bullying platform, to bring awareness to bullying in schools. The best trait that Bridg-it has is that you can anonymously report bullying to your school. I know that if I had had the option to report what I was going through without having to call out names, I would’ve been much more prone to report it.
