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.”

Watch Meg Medina address cultural stereotypes and bullying.

Award-winning Cuban American author Meg Medina writes middle-grade and young adult fiction including Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your A**. She was the 2014 recipient of the Pura Belpré Author Award and will present a keynote session focusing on bullying and Latina achievement.

Now in its 11th year, the Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference has raised awareness of the unique nature of female relationships and provided solutions for relational aggression among girls. This conference helps educators understand the latest research, while learning about field-tested strategies designed to cultivate leadership skills and empower young women.
