Country music newcomer Lizzie Sider is on a mission.

The 16-year-old singer/songwriter – who was bullied and teased relentlessly when she was younger – is carrying her powerful, anti-bullying message of hope and empowerment to school kids all across America.

She’s using a song she wrote, “Butterfly,” as part of an interactive assembly program to reach elementary and middle school students. In just one school year, she appeared at 250 schools and touched the lives of more than 100,000 children.

… HNGN caught up with the teenage singer and active anti-bullying ambassador for an exclusive interview as she waited to board a plane in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She candidly talked about the bullying she endured, how that experience changed her life in unexpected ways, what she does in her highly-successful assembly program and how she used her negative experiences to write her uplifting song “Butterfly.”
