AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR MEG MEDINA TO KEYNOTE GIRL BULLYING CONFERENCE ORLANDO!

Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference Keynote Speaker Meg Medina was bullied in junior high school and says “When you have a conflict with someone, it’s like radioactive energy is in the room. All you can think about is that person’s presence. It crowds out everything else.  It comes down to what enrages the person who’s doing the bullying. As soon as you stand out in any way, it becomes a liability.”
