The battle against bullying is a huge issue for children, but the problem is also online and so is the battle to fight it.
Middle schooler Hannah Evenson has created a website and even sells bracelets to raise awareness for her cause, battling bullies.
"It tells the viewers how they can help me and the victims," says Hannah, "this tells what bullying is about, why it's bullying, how you can find out about bullying."
Hannah created a website called "Stop the Bull" through her first hand experience of being the victim.
"They said to me you're ugly, stupid and you're never going to do anything. They would talk behind my back and gossip about me," said Hannah. "There wasn't much to do about it the only thing I could really do was stay away from her," she continued.
Luckily for Hannah, she has a strong support staff at home.
Mimi Everson, Hannah's Mom says that even though Hannah's bullying problem was small, "it didn't make her feel any less because it was a small issue, but all at the same time she has a big support group and she has some very close friends and family that were able to help her through it."
Many of our young people are not so lucky. With bullying becoming a national issue, creating awareness is key and this 11-year-old has the right idea.
"Parents can talk to other parents about children, teachers can create more awareness in the schools, she really feels passionate about it. She doesn't want other people to feel like she felt," says Mimi.
