Great anti-bullying message…

After getting bullied for most of elementary school, 13 year-old Leondre decided to channel his stress in the most awesome way imaginable… by writing it down and then reaching out to others. He formed a rap duo with a friend he made through social media and together they auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent.

Their inspiring performance has already gotten 22 million views in the last week. This clip of their appearance on Ellen yesterday is a must see for a middle school health class. It contains messages about bullying, healthy coping skills, and the power of social media to bring about positive change.

A truly awesome example of positive prevention.
