Hey guys, many of you have asked when would I start writing by myself. Well, I'm in 3rd grade now and I know my way around a computer. Starting in the next few weeks I will be logging on and blogging all by myself. Tune is as I talk about fun topics, my new baby sister, perhaps my puppy Diva and of course I will touch on bullying. Will you tune in? I hope so...
I'm launching a Kickstarter campaign to help fund my interactive App

Are you smarter than a fifth-grader? You may like to think so, but some very smart adults are suggesting we think again. They’re just beginning to explore the intellectual capacity, well in minds as young as 15 months. In this hour of "To the Best of Our Knowledge," we’ll meet some of these adults and the young thinkers in their lives, as we talk “kid knowledge.”
LaNiyah Bailey and Mom, LaToya (Toyiah Marquis) talks about the stigma behind obesity and her anti-bullying efforts with Ricki Lake!!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Chicago, IL) March 11, 2013 – LaNiyah Bailey, the award winning 8-year-old author is proud to announce that she and her parents have written and put together a list of best and worst’s for parents and children to learn from. The list effectively outlines some of the best and worse courses of action that can be taken when bullying becomes an issue. The list can be used by parents and children to successfully combat and prevent bullying, without making many of the mistakes that people often do make when it comes to sensitivity and conflict.
LaNiyah Bailey has recently appeared on the “Ricki Lake Show” in Los Angeles, CA, and tours schools around the world with her “Stand Up” anti-bullying curriculum. As an author and anti-bullying advocate, LaNiyah Bailey strongly disagrees with bullying, and works with parents and children alike to help prevent bullying wherever possible. Bullying is such a sensitive and precious topic as LaNiyah experienced bullying because, of her weight for years. She found the strength at the young age of 6 and decided to take a stand against an issue that leaves life long scars.
LaNiyah Bailey has also written two highly-acclaimed children’s books, entitled “Not Fat Because I Wanna Be” and “Stand Up! Bully Busters Coming To Town.” Both of her books have received outstanding praise and testimonials from readers, as well as being featured on several media outlets and review sites. Her book “Not Fat Because I Wanna Be” has also been cataloged in several libraries around the country and also added to the 3rd-8th grade curriculum at the Avalon English Institute in Seoul, Korea.
