Kingsborough MS receives pop music-fueled anti-bullying message

Kingsborough Middle School students sang and danced their hearts out as they received a powerful anti-bullying message from Teen Nation Tour.

The tour is an effort to educate and entertain youth about bullying in a way students can relate.

As part of the tour, a group of talented teen artists performed Top 40 hits from artists like Drake, Katy Perry, Alessia Cara and others. Between songs, the performers shared personal stories about being bullied in middle school.

One of the artists had been locked shut in a gym locker, another teen had been spit on and others were victims of cyberbullying.

Instead of fighting back with fire though, the teens fought back by telling trusted adults.

The performers encouraged students to stand up against bullying, to always be kind and to be ROYOL – Rulers of Your Own Life. Several of the performers had been bullied in school for singing, but they pursued their dreams despite the negativity they received from their peers. The teens advocated for self-love and to pursue their passions.

By the end of the concert, Kingsborough MS students were tangled up in each other’s arms and dancing together.

The Teen Nation Tour is the brainchild of San Antonio resident Lee Wilson whose son was bullied and severely injured.

According to the National Bullying Prevention Center, nearly one-third of all school-aged children are bullied each year. More than half of bullying situations stop when a peer intervenes on behalf of the student being bullied.
