Lourdes Duertes, Mark Suppelsa and their *special* guest…LANIYAH BAILEY!!!
About a month ago we received an email from our friend Ms. Veronica over at Pix11 News expressing their interest in LaNiyah's advocacy and her story.
We set up a date for LaNiyah to fly to NYC to do an in-depth interview.
LaNiyah visited New York a week ago, for the interview sponsored by 'Dunkin Donuts' with Pix11 News and a book signing at Hue-Man Bookstore in Harlem, NY.
"This interview is one of her best interviews to date."
Why do I say that?
Well, LaNiyah who if you remember and have viewed her interviews from a year ago has now gained a load of confidence and has come out of her shell. She's very keen and truthful on her bout with bullying and she understands now more than ever the realistic affects of bullying.
She gave Pix11 a very enlightening and wholehearted look at her short little life, her bout with bullying and her plea to banish the thing that has taken the lives of many young people that were being bullied in the past few months.
We hope that you too will join our movement and help us "Bust out bullying" for once and for all!!!
We need your help in our quest......... Are you with us?
Here are a few pics we'd like to share!!
As many of you know LaNiyah was selected as one of The Grio's '100 History Makers In The Making.' She visited NBC Studios to say "hello" to her friends over at The Grio.
They were 'super-cool!' exclaims LaNiyah on her visit at The Grio.
LaNiyah also told us that she had the chance to go on a tour with Ashley Williams at NBC. They went to visit the set of "Saturday Night Live," "MSNBC," "Dr. Oz," and other NBC newsrooms. A great time had by all~
