Help Our Youth to Say Bye-Bye to Bullying

 Visual Artist/Aspiring Actress Clara Huff  and Miss United States 2011/Channel 13 News Daybreak Reporter  Ashley Smith

Less than a month ago, there was a disheartening report on the news about a 12-year-old girl from Florida who had been cyber bullied for an entire year. She eventually changed her Facebook name to "Dead Girl" and sometime later climbed onto a tower and plunged to her death. She was only a year younger than my first born Clara Huff. 

As a mom, educator and youth motivator, this hits home for me. That is why Powerhouse Media Group (PMG) will be conducting our "Say Bye-Bye to Bullying" workshop on Saturday, December 21, 2013 from 11 am to 1 pm at the Indian River Public Library (Chesapeake, VA). Youth ages 10-14 will be engaged in activities that will help them to recognize the many forms of bullying (verbal, physical, cyber, alienation, etc), encourage them to take a stand for themselves and learn how to assist their peers who are being bullied. 

Clara Huff will be deliver her original monologue "Ghost", which speaks from the voice of youth being bullied through alienation. An anti-bullying PSA will be screened and there will be a special singing performance by a fellow youth. 

Miss United States 2011 and current 13 News daybreak traffic reporter Ashley Smith is the workshop's special invited guest. Ms. Smith will share her bullying experiences and talk about how they empowered her as she journeyed into beauty pageant competitions. 

PARENTS... Please DO NOT brush this workshop off because it takes place during the Christmas Break. This is the perfect time for our youth to be empowered and equipped to handle bullying issues should their arise or continue when school resumes.
