Because October is National Bullying Prevention Month, we honored three amazing teen girls in our FALL 2014 “Girls Making a Difference” feature that are working to prevent bullying; one of those girls is Lizzie Sider.
In elementary school, Lizzie Sider was teased and ridiculed. Today, this 16-year-old country singer/songwriter from South Florida visits schools and leads anti-bullying assemblies. During the last school year, Lizzie met with over 100,000 students in over 250 schools in California, Florida, and Texas.
At the end of each assembly, Lizzie performs her original song “Butterfly,” which she co-wrote about her experience and how she overcame the teasing. Watch the music video here: http://youtu.be/KJuu1hKo-u8
Check out Lizzie’s official lyric video for the song, too.
For the 2014 – 2015 school year, Lizzie will be visiting ten cities across the country where she will spend a week in each and fully emerge herself into that community to promote her message of bullying prevention. Check out her website, LizzieSider.com, for more information.

Sixteen-year-old Country artist Lizzie Sider will bring her “Nobody
Has the Power to Ruin Your Day” Bully Prevention Assembly Tour to New York City from October 6-15.
The tour, which has already hit California, Florida and Texas, will coincide with the month’s National Bully Prevention activities and include visits with at least one school in each of New York City’s five boroughs. Sider has already met with more than 250 schools, connecting with more than 100,000 students.
During the assemblies, Sider encourages kids to help prevent bullying, as she recounts her own personal journey as a young student who was ridiculed and teased. She will also perform her original song “Butterfly,” which she co-wrote about her experience and how she overcame the teasing.
Check LizzieSider.com for a list of Sider’s seven assembly appearances throughout New York City.
