“Nobody Has The Power
To Ruin Your Day”
This will be the theme of my exciting, and important upcoming project –
My Bully Prevention California School
◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊
In honor and support of OCTOBER being NATIONAL BULLY PREVENTION MONTH, I am taking to the road, touring elementary and middle schools across the State of California, to conduct Bully Prevention assemblies. Because of the overwhelmingly positive response by the schools in California, I will be reaching over 80 schools via more than 70 assemblies from October 7 to November 26, 2013.
During these fun, 30-40 minute interactive assemblies, I will talk about the importance of everyone doing their part to standing up to stop bullying. I will share my own story of being teased and ridiculed in elementary school, what it felt like, and how I dealt with it. Also, I’ll share what it is like to be 15 and pursuing a professional music career, to be on TV and radio, and to be interviewed for newspapers and magazines. I will sing some songs, including “BUTTERFLY” (my official MUSIC VIDEO has over 1,000,000 views on YouTube). Additionally, I’ll provide discussion questions to the schools, to follow up in the classrooms, about bullying.
My new lyric video for “Butterfly”
Here is the link to my new LYRIC VIDEO for “BUTTERFLY”. I’m really proud of this video because I created it myself (with the technical help of my mom). And I’m thrilled to see that it’s already gotten over 13,000 views on YouTube! Thank you!
During the school assemblies, I will sing “BUTTERFLY” live for the kids, encouraging them to join in and sing along. We’re going to have a load of fun, and get some important work done.
Actions are louder than words.
My tour will start out in the far northwest part of the State, and extend as far south as the desert of Palm Springs.
I am excited about the many amazing, memorable moments that this tour will bring, and look forward to getting to know as many people – kids and adults – as I possibly can along the way. This will be an amazing adventure that I know I will remember for the rest of my life! My hope is that this time spent visiting schools will truly help to stop the bullying!

A SPECIAL MESSAGE to the kids in the schools that I will be visiting – I am really looking forward to meeting each and every one of you! See you soon!
Much love to all of you,
