Danielle is the new ambassador for a foundation anti cyber bullying called “Cybersmile Foundation”, she participated as an ambassador delivering messages of support and sharing her own story with all who have been bullied at school or online.
Danielle told her story, read below.
“I SUPPORT CYBERSMILE because I have been bullied at different stages of my life and think that having a charity that talks about the reality of it, and what affect it can have on people is so important, especially for younger people who may feel as if they have nobody to turn to” – Danielle Peazer
From your experience what is the best way to deal with bullies?
I was bullied at school I told my mum and she helped tackle it by talking to my schoolteachers, I was really shy and quiet and have never been a fan of confronting people. As I’ve got older I realised that it is a mixture of jealousy and anger in the bullies and actually the best way to deal with it is to ignore it and know that as long as you are happy with yourself that’s all that matters.
What is your advice to victims of cyber bullying?
Don’t keep it to yourself – talk to someone you trust. There is no point trying to get sympathy from the bully as it gives them power to carry on. But always remember, they are probably bullying you because of their own insecurity. Be proud of who you are and don’t let them win.
What is your message to cyber bullies?
Get a life!
What positive things should people be doing on the internet:
The Internet is so much more than Twitter, Facebook, Keek and Tumblr; there are so many things to discover and learn from it, there is so much knowledge within it. It’s also great to make friends from around the world that share the same interests as you.
Fun fundraising recommendation for Cybersmile?
I think that a sponsored twitter silence would be a great idea and a strong message to show the number of people that are serious about standing up to cyber bullies.
The nicest tweet you’ve ever received?
I like reading tweets, which make me feel positive about my life. I like receiving tweets from people saying I have inspired them is so lovely as I’ve always just focused on what I want to achieve in life.
Which is your favourite Cybersmile band?
I love the ‘CTRL IT ALT IT DELETE IT’ one and the ‘Tweet others as you’d like to be tweeted’ bands! (available to buy soon!)
