We recently caught up with Jen Unbe, who wrote the song Bully (link below). We love her talents and energy, and her deep compassion. We want to introduce her to you as an example of someone whose creative drive has helped her keep pushing to grow, while her empathy and compassion keep her connected to and helping others. She’s a great example for girls and all young artists. You’ll love her as much as we do!

Bullying prevention specialist Lorna Blumen and the BullyingEpidemic.com team have tools to stop bullying in its tracks.

The benefits: fewer discipline problems, better working environment, and schools with less bullying make faster academic progress!
