Recently, I posted a four-minute video on YouTube about my bullying story and how it ruined my adolescent years. I believe this is greatly overlooked and so many people don’t understand how harmful words like NAPPY can do to a child growing up.  More people should be aware and try to uplift our youth. I’m starting my #AntiBullying campaign and really just wanted to spread how I felt about this.
