This time I spoke with Elayna Hasty of G.A.B. Girls. This is a teen that started an antibullying campaign. It only makes sense that I speak with her because this summit is “By kids for kids.”
“Every 7 min a child is being bullied but only 1/4 of the time someone intervenes. Kids need to be more empowered to stand up for their peers & themselves.”
“Love yourself but also love those around you. Be good to yourself & be good to others. You never know what they’re going through unless you’re in their shoes.”
