No student should have to go through what I went through in elementary and middle school. A lot of what I am doing is talking about my experiences with bullying, and making people aware of how their actions and words affect others. I want people to understand the importance of LGBTQ-plus identities and make sure students are protected, included, and have safe spaces.
