Actress Brittany Snow has revealed she was bullied by some girls in high school. Snow, 28, said her own experience has encouraged her to help children, who are victims of bulling, reported People magazine.
“AOL Instant Messenger was a big thing back in the day, where girls would get on it and make fun of me. There was a certain girl, and she wanted to make me feel bad,” she said. Snow channelled her personal experiences into the formation of Love is Louder, an organisation she started with The Jed Foundation in October 2010 to encourage the use of social media to promote love and support for anyone who is in need of it.
“When the suicides were starting to happen and kids were being bullied in schools, I felt really compelled to do something because I was bullied in school, and I didn’t really fit into a category that a lot of programs that were being started had. “Now we have a really great opportunity with social media to use that communication for good, where people can go online and actually feel like they’re part of a community,” Snow said.
