Singer/songwriter, actress, inspirational speaker, and still a teen, Meredith O'Connor appeals to kids in every grade because of her well known anti-bullying platform, as well as her song "the game". She has performed in theater since age 8, and was later discovered for modeling and songwriting. She now speaks about her childhood of not fitting in, and how she was able to overcome bullying. Her fans look up to her, and she wants to be the role model she feels many kids need in their life.

Our President and Founder Fabianna Pergolizzi will be interviewing Anthony Ianni, a former MSU basketball star who is currently a national spokes person against bullying.
Anthony was diagnosed with autism at 4 years old while living in Ohio. At that time his parents were told by medical specialists and professionals that he would never be successful academically, that he would likely not graduate from high school much less go to college, and most likely would live in a group home in the future and that being an athlete was out of the question. HE PROVED THEM WRONG! Anthony's family relocated to mid-Michigan when he was a young child where he graduated from Okemos High School. He went on to graduate from Michigan State University in 2012 with a bachelor of arts in sociology. He is a former MSU basketball player for MSU and Tom Izzo and receiving an athletic scholarship in 2011-2012. He was a member of the 2010 and 2012 Big Ten Champion and Tournament Championship teams in addition to being part of the 2010 Final Four Team. He is the 2011 MSU winner of the Tim Bograkos Walk-On Award Winner and 2012 MSU Unsung Player Award Winner. Anthony also played basketball at Grand Valley State University for 2 years prior to transferring to MSU and went undefeated in the regular season. Although Anthony has many accomplishments in his life, it has required his hard work and committed parents. Anthony endured significant bullying as a child. He has also met a number of challenges along the way and continues to face obstacles, but is determined to overcome them.
My Guest is Tiffani Shaun K Palmer. Miss Palmer is the founder of S.T.E.P Resources, a non-profit organization for young women ages 14-25, who have been victims of bullying, teen pregnancy, rape, abuse and low self esteem. Their goal is to reach and counsel as many young women as she can and spread Christ and his love to them. To help them become independent, strong, to help them find housing, provide food church and job placement. We are looking to help over 2,000 young ladies by the middle of next year.
Victims of bullying include girls and boys of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds. But some children are more likely than others to be victimized because they appear small, weak, insecure, sensitive, or “different” from their peers.
Some children can reduce their risk of being bullied by dressing or acting in ways that make it easier for them to “fit in.” Yet children should not be expected to conform to avoid the threat of bullying. Every child’s individuality should be appreciated for the value it brings to the group, rather than suppressed to reduce the risk of victimization. Furthermore, not all children are able to alter personal characteristics that may place them at increased risk.
We will be discussing ways to end bullying in every aspect of our lives. We have a very special interview with Popstar Katja Glieson and we will be playing her anti-bullying song: Superstar. Call in live to voice your opinion: 718.766.4494
