Featured Student Writer: Kyra Law-Mckenzie

“I think what inspired me to write my essay is that I know how bullying feels.” Kyra explains, “I have been known as a bully and I have been bullied. I feel nobody wants to be bullied. Also, I think people bully others because they don’t feel good about themselves and they want another person to feel what they’re feeling. I just want to change anything that is affecting anybody’s community in a bad, harmful way.”

In the future, Kyra hopes to keep doing what she is doing with school and try to stay positive and a good influence for others. “I think I could change my community and others’ community, maybe even the world. I think I will and can be the next Oprah Winfrey!”
