You could never describe inspirational student Anita Dennison as a victim and yet when she was just 16 she endured a relentless year long hate campaign of cyber bulling.
Support from her family and school got her through what were horrific months and inspired Anita to become a leading campaigner in the field of anti-bullying.
The 18-year-old from Bessbrook, near Newry, runs her own anti-bullying website and Twitter campaign through which she not only helps other victims of bullying but inspires and advises parents and adults alike. She is passionate about beating bullying not just in the school playground and online but for adults too who experience it in the workplace.
And, as more than 800 schools and youth groups across Northern Ireland get ready to take part in this year’s Anti-Bullying Week next week, she is leading the way in support of the many initiatives organised across the province to mark this important annual campaign. Under the theme ‘Together we will make a difference — End Bullying Now’, the week will run from Monday to Friday, November 17–21.
