“For anyone that is getting bullied – no matter what age, race, gender – this doesn’t define you. The words does not define you, their actions do not define you.”
In It Starts With You, Destiny Blackwell (Mentor: Meredith McGowan) describes her personal experience as a victim of bullying.
“This story is about my journey to becoming the person I am today after getting bullied,” said Destiny, a graduate of the Spring 2016 Lab. “In my movie I talk about the different phases of my journey in the hopes of inspiring other people who have gone through similar struggles.”
