Anti-Bullying Campaign Takes Hold At FDR


Ruben Bolisca, Reporter

Every day, thousands of kids are bullied for their looks or social status. This nationwide epidemic has grabbed the attention of both parents and students, as they try to figure out how to stop this dangerous activity. Bullying is when a person is picked on, or made fun of, by an individual or group for their appearance and social standing. However, there have been campaigns to make kids and teenagers aware of bullying and ways to stop it. One such an event was not merely a campaign, but a competition.  Our very own Aliyah Powell participated and won this competition. She gave us details on the Anti- bullying competition.

What was the Anti-Bullying competition about?

“It was a competition for someone to make the best Anti-Bullying shirt.”

What role did you play in the completion?

“My role in the competition was to make the best shirt I can to win the competition.  Just like all the other students, I tried my best.”

What recommendation would you give to someone who is being bullied?

“I’d recommend a person whose getting bullied to tell someone about it. Stand up for yourself, because no one deserves to be in that situation. Yes, their scared to tell, but it’s better than being hurt everyday and afraid.”

Congratulations to Aliyah for working hard to raise awareness to the dangers of bullying and winning the competition!  You made us proud.
