Nine Teens Charged After Relentless Bullying: Author Reveals How She Went from Bullying Victim to Prom Queen

DOVER, Del., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Nine Massachusetts teens have been charged for their relentless bullying of 15-year-old classmate Phoebe Prince. After months of intolerable harassment, Prince hanged herself. This tragedy has focused the nation's attention on the recurrent problem of school bullying and how parents and teachers can prevent such activity.  

Image consultant, author, and speaker S. Renee Smith speaks candidly about her experiences with bullies in school and offers advice about how kids can turn their lives around to make their school years enjoyable. In her book, There Is More Inside: Personal Essentials to Living a Power-Packed Life, Smith details how she was afraid of everyone and everything in school. Bullies would trip or push her in the hallways and even took her money and her desserts at lunch.

She chose to transform her life by attracting her classmates with positivity, eventually being voted by her classmates as Prom Queen, Most Popular, Friendliest, Best Dressed, and Most Reliable in just two short years.

Invite Smith to share her journey of going from being teased every day to becoming the most popular girl in school. She can answer:

  • What is it like to feel trapped by school bullies?
  • Why is mutual validation so important?
  • How can teens become comfortable with themselves?
  • How can kids make themselves more likable?
  • What makes bullies attack others?
