My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Free2Luv, Seattle, WA, USA
I joined @free_2_luv last year because I struggled with self-confidence due to the many negative labels given to me. The most commonly used words were nerd, fat, ugly, untalented and annoying. .
Truth is, I still struggle, but I am lucky to have my family and friends. I know not everyone is as lucky to have that support system, so I wanted to help others. Becoming a youth advocate for Free2Luv was fate! It fell into my lap when I was trying to find my smile again and help others.
According to studies by Yale University, bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims. One life lost to bullying is one life too many.
I am still working on my self-confidence and really struggle making friends but I am feeling blessed more and more every day
