School is coming to an end!

The school year is quickly coming to a close, and with that comes exam...every teenagers nightmare. Although in my case, this school year has been nothing but a positive turn around for me! I am so glad to have been able to be apart of my new LHSN family. It makes me sad that school is ending, but makes me even more excited to spend time and hang out with all my friends over summer break and of course I am looking forward to junior year! My school year started out on a low note and is ending on a high note! 

During the summer I will have more time to post more often and I am still working on telling you my story of how and why I started my Bash Out Bullying Organization! On that note happy exam week fellow high schoolers!

Stay strong and stay positive,

Sticks And Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Can Sometimes Hurt Me

I just learned today that something I said in 6th grade about a girl (something not so nice) is still bothering her. I had no idea until seeing it on Twitter today! I apologized then, and I have apologized to her again today, hopefully this will bring some closure. That's why I am so excited about this new movement Bash Out Bullying! Nobody deserves to be bullied! 

Stay strong and stay positive,

Ready to Bash Out Bullying?

Hello there!

My name is Courtney Jay Harris and I am an 16 year old sophomore who lives in St. Louis, MO. Bash Out Bullying is not only the name of this blog, but the name of something that will become a movement! I was bullied and I plan to share my story, by bringing more awareness to bullying and inspiring others to stand up and speak out. This blog will be used to help people going through similar situations that I have experienced. I hope to connect with like-minded, positive people who share a passion for bringing more awareness about bullying and maintaining and gaining healthy friendships. I chose the color purple because it is not only my favorite color, but it symbolizes being understanding and supportive. 

I will post and share other bullying stories, news articles, and photos. I will not only be posting my stories, but your stories too! Just simply email bashoutbullying@gmail.com and you could see your story here! This blog is meant for a positive and safe environment to share my thoughts and yours about bullying!

Stay strong and stay positive,
Courtney Jay
