Keynote speaker for the 11th Annual Our Kids in Action Youth Conference, Jamie Isaacs has been honored as this month’s News 12 Making a Difference story.
Jamie Isaacs is 15 years old and a victim of intense bullying. Jamie considers herself a strong survivor due to the fact that the bullying started when she was in the 2nd grade, at age 8, and lasted through 7th grade, when she was 13 years old.
The only reason the bullying stopped was because she was formally withdrawn from the school in which it occurred. Jamie’s story is unlike any other bullying story that you have heard about or read. She decided to put her ordeal into words and comprise a book that would tell the poweJamie Isaacsrful story of what she went through and what her parents did to keep her alive!
As you are well aware, bullying can lead to suicide. This is why Jamie found it necessary to be the founder of the Jamie Isaacs Foundation for Anti-Bullying, Inc.
On Friday, December 2, 2011, thousands of our enthusiastic and bright middle school students will attend the 11th Annual Our Kids in Action Youth Conference. This year’s program will double as an Anti-Bully Rally and showcase Jamie Isaacs, a local youth who has contributed to the community on both local and global levels.
