I want to raise awareness because bullying has gotten to the point where people don’t know when/how it can affect someone until it does. I never knew until Izzy got pushed to the point where she took her own life. I t is heartbreaking to see a friend that you thought could take everything do that. It made everything so real. I then knew how bad bullying can be. And the fact that there is social media doesn’t exactly help. I then got the chance to show how I felt in a thing called genius hour at my school. I created a topic that I was passionate about (Anti bullying/suicide prevention)and did a service project to raise money to give to a charity; that’s when the Izzy Project started. My school fundraisers raised $2,500. I then pushed forward with my cause and started selling bracelets and shirts and my uncle made me a website so I could sell them. I think it’s about time that people see how their words can effect someone. That’s what pushes me to continue the Izzy Project and why I raise awareness.
