“TBH” Anti-Bullying Campaign
During her freshman and sophomore years of high school, Britain Bennett was a victim of both cyber-bullying and indirect bullying. She was bullied to the point she didn’t want to get out of bed or go to school. At her lowest point, she told her parents she didn’t want to live anymore. After many months of reflection, she realized there were three activities that helped her overcome bullying. She summarized these activities in an easy to remember acronym “TBH” which stands for:
- TALK TO SOMEONE
- BLOCK HURTFUL WORDS OUT OF YOUR HEAD AND YOUR HEART
- HELP OTHERS
She has presented this strategy to schools, non-profit organizations, churches, malls and state anti-bullying campaigns. She appeared on the the television network TLC discussing her struggles with being bullied on an episode of Coach Charming. She contacted the Hillary Clinton campaign and shared her strategy. The campaign team asked Britain to meet with Hillary. Together, Britain and Hillary created an anti-bullying media message. Britain has also written and received a grant to create and supply all middle schools in Erie County, Ohio with anti-bullying brochures.
