Interview with Anna Burns- 7th Grader
Q: What is the Anti-Bullying Student Awareness Campaign?
A: The Anti-Bullying Student Awareness Campaign is pretty much explained in the name. It is a campaign run by students, for students, to help put an end to bullying.
Q: What is your plan to put a stop to bullying?
A: At our campaign, we know it is virtually impossible to put an entire end on bullying. There will still be that one person who bullies another person. It is unlikely that we will put a halt on bullying altogether, but that doesn't mean we can’t at least try.
Q: Some students are not going to take this seriously, are you aware of that?
A: Absolutely. We do not expect everyone to listen and take our advice, but it all starts with one person.
Q: Bullying isn’t really that big of a deal, so why are you making such a big deal over it?
A: 28% of students in grades 6-12 experience bullying, it may not seem like that much, but it's really quite a large number, and 70.6% of young students have witnessed bullying.
Q: Why should bullying be ended?
A: Bullying is something very serious, it can lead to drop in grades, change in behavior, and suicidal tendencies.
Q: You mention suicide, how likely is that to happen?
A: At least 16% of students today seriously consider suicide. 13% make a plan, and 8% attempt it. Suicide is something that is to be taken very very seriously and always pay attention to warning signs.
Q: Who can help here at CW Stanford?
A: There are many resources here, our social worker, Mrs. McBroom, our guidance counselors, Mrs. Carr or Ms.Wintz, you can even talk to some of your trusted teachers.
