She Matters Too Conference
I, along with Miss Teen District of Columbia International Margo Huffman, participated in the sisterhood rap session. Structured as a Q&A session, the girls were encouraged to talk about self esteem, school, friends and anything else that they wanted candid answers to. Although the girls were encouraged to ask questions about anything , the main topic became bullying. Bullying is and continues to be a major problem for kids. A lot of kids feel like they aren’t taken seriously when they report bullying or they feel like they risk losing their friends. Although it is a complicated subject there are a few things that are true across the board. If you are being bullied, contact an adult, and anybody who bullies you, is not your friend.
