Nikki Yanofsky is adding her voice to the campaign against anti-bullying.
The 16-year-old singer caught up with ET Canada before and after her performance at Canadaâ€™s Walk of Fame concert event last weekend. Check out what she had to say about the cause:
â€œIâ€™ve always been a huge advocate against bullying because I myself was actually a target all through elementary school I was tormented every day. Not physically but verbally and actually when I was in the 6th grade, we still donâ€™t know who to this day because it was anonymous, but people kept putting gum in my hat â€“ chewed gum. So when I put it on it would get stuck in my hair and they would put it in my boot and I would have to buy new boots because it would get stuck to my sock. I had to go to school everyday living in suspicion of everyone in my class and I was very very very lucky to have a great support system.â€
Her advice to others getting bullied: â€œI learned that you have to know who you are even if youâ€™re unsure of it. You canâ€™t doubt yourself you just have to have confidence and I know thatâ€™s easier said then done trust me I know that but you just have to keep your head held high even if you donâ€™t believe it because soon enough you will. I would just say you have to treat it like water off a ducks back and know that all theyâ€™re looking for is a reaction and if you donâ€™t give it to them then it will stop.â€
