CTS: Tell us about your anti bullying initiative you were involved with. Do you think it accomplished what it needed to?
FZ: I think that bullying has become such a worldwide issue and there is always more that can be done to help . I’m looking forward to the coming year and continuing my fight for anti bullying .
CTS: What message would you like to get out to teens about bullying?
FZ: Being a teenager can be some of the toughest years . So many teens are insecure , not comfortable with themselves , and are just trying to find their place in the world. I can’t change people’s actions or opinions but there is a very simple way to put it “if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say it all.” Be kind make a difference and help others in need.
