Her Powerful Statement Against Bullying Is Something Everyone Should See

The saying “sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me” isn’t exactly true. When we are called names, belittled, and bullied, it deeply affects us. As much as we try to brush off the hurtful words that others call us, they can leave deep emotional scars.

YouTuber Lauren Brocious decided to make a powerful statement against these bullies by creating an inspirational video called #labels. In the video, she talks about the effects of these negative labels and how we shouldn’t let them define who we are.
