Sixteen-year-old Country artist Lizzie Sider will bring her “Nobody Has the Power to Ruin Your Day” Bully Prevention Assembly Tour to New York City from October 6-15.
The tour, which has already hit California, Florida and Texas, will coincide with the month’s National Bully Prevention activities and include visits with at least one school in each of New York City’s five boroughs. Sider has already met with more than 250 schools, connecting with more than 100,000 students.
During the assemblies, Sider encourages kids to help prevent bullying, as she recounts her own personal journey as a young student who was ridiculed and teased. She will also perform her original song “Butterfly,” which she co-wrote about her experience and how she overcame the teasing.
