Every day, more than 16,000 kids miss school because of bullying. 45% of kids experience bullying before age 18. 38% of kids believe that their school doesn’t take bullying seriously. It’s time for a change. BULLYPROOF bring together leaders from numerous countries, backgrounds, and industries who have a common purpose: to effect change in society by empowering children and teens to be bully proof. With “anti-bully” programs currently being implemented in schools having only limited success, these experts bring their own perspectives on how to empower a young person to unleash the hero inside of them.
I believe that bullying is a repetitive behavior that occurs with the intent to harm someone’s reputation, harm them emotionally and/or physically. Bullying is not a joke, to get someones attention it is a thought provoking action. This movement I have created is called Bullyproof Life. Bullyproof Life is about bulletproofing all aspects of Life, home, schools, business and internet. It is about not putting a band-aid over the situation at hand. It is about looking at why is bullying happening? What if the bully felt self-worth and had connection in his/her life, would they still feel the need to take it away from another vulnerable person? I believe NOT! The victim of bullying is just a way the bullier can satisfy those needs. It is about control and getting the feelings/emotions met. It is a self gratifying moment, at the expense of someone else.
Get REAL is the solution to the problem. It is about Rewriting the story that the person is living in. Then it is about Evolving into the new story (by coming up with strategies). Action, taking action using the strategies in order to Live the new story… Wether you are bullying, being bullied, self-harming or contemplating suicide, it is time to get R.E.A.L.
I would like to personally like to thank Veenu for coming here today to speak to all of our freshman and sophomore class. I do hope that all or our students in the Onslow County Schools do have the opportunity to hear her speak and hear her story because we do know that every child has a story and it truly about how other students perceive themselves and how they shouldn’t allow others people to identify who they are and We really need to stop the bullying issues that we have and I truly feel that Veenu is bringing that to the for front for our students. Again I hope all onslow county students have the opportunity to hear what she has to say so they can begin their journey in identifying who they are and have a successful future.
Mrs. Keller is an excellent presenter for middle and high school student audiences. She provides programs on various topics, i.e bullin, leadership,. She connects with students on a personal level and engages them in her program. Her leadership presentation is a strong message for individual growth and continued renewal.
Not only does she make connections with her audience, she takes time to interact with them one-on-one and follows up with their questions. Her concern in helping students is very evident in her life’s work.
“Veenu helped me get to know myself and get to know where I wanted to be and really gave me the tools to get there. I couldn’t be more grateful and recommend spending as much time as you can with Veenu Keller. ”
