If You Don’t Have Something Nice to Say…

Written by Jenn Sadai I find myself reciting those words, “Be the Bigger Person,” in my head quite often. So many people, especially on social media, are quick to judge and attack without warning. Although my intent is always to spread kindness, I am opinionated about politics and social issues that affect the world we live in. I openly share my thoughts on certain subjects and it’s never my intention to offend anyone who disagrees with me. However, having a {Read More}

TADA Theater: Educating on Bullying & LGBT Through Musicals

Recently Bullies Keep Out was invited to TADA Theater, which is a non-profit 501(c)3 youth theater company in NYC.

Picking Up The Pieces

Anna Labor and Bellamy Young at Paley Fest   Like so many others I was bullied all through school, but it was middle school when it got really bad — all because of a rumor another girl decided to spread about me and a fellow friend.
