My name is Sasha. I am 9 years old. I have decided to start this project because I have been bullied since I was 6 years old. I was bullied because I had a retainer, because I have short hair and for the way I dress. I felt a need to share this with others and make a change because I know how hurtful words can be. My brother was teased because he wore a pair of “short” shorts. He was so scared of getting teased again that he wouldn’t wear shorts for 2 weeks. Our mission is to help kids who are scared of standing up for themselves. We will provide support and helpful resources for them to grow stronger and find their voice.
Since I am only 9 years old, I feel that I can best help kids my age and younger.
