My journey with Bully Zero came as a result of online bullying. As a model, the use of social media is a big part in order to represent yourself as a brand. But this doesn’t always go well with others. You get body shamed, you get called names, and you even get called out for being a narcissist. I was bullied all through my life growing up and it changed me as a person to the point where I tried to end my life. Why I represent Bully Zero is because it’s my chance to help others never feel like they’re alone or that that should be ashamed of who they are. Everyone has the right to feel safe and be who they are. My goal is to help fight against bullies and stand up for those in need.
