On supporting the goal to end bullying:
“Bullying is something I went through, from third to sixth grade, when I got pulled out [of school]. I still go through it. And if I can be the person who says, “Trust me when I tell you it will be OK,” then I will be that person.”
On things she would say to her formal bullies:
“Often bullies are taking something [personal] out on others. If they use that energy to make someone smile, we can save so many people in the long run.”
