Stand Up & Speak Out

TEDx Talk

In November 2015,  I took to the TEDx stage in Omagh, Co. Tyrone.

This is the piece that was written alongside my very proud moment.

Anita is a 19 year old just like most 19 year old women. The main difference and the reason we love her at TEDx Omagh is simple. Having been the victim of HORRIBLE bullying, rather than let it get her down, she stood up to the bullies and now stands in front of those being bullied around the world. This is a woman with so much potential and we at TEDx Omagh cannot wait to see what her future holds.

Hey, my name is Anita Dennison and I am a 19 year old Anti-Bullying campaigner from Ireland. The main aim of my campaign is to promote confidence and positivity amongst those who have suffered as a result of bullying. I know the impact that bullying can have on an individual all too well, as I was the victim of an horrific bullying campaign... BUT as they say, "every cloud has a silver lining", I was very fortunate to find mine through the help and support of my family, friends and school and now I want to share my guidance and advice with you all to help you overcome ANY obstacle in your life, you already have the strength to do it, you just need the self belief to go along with it.

My TEDx Talk, I hope it can help you and your loved ones through any obstacle you may be facing in life. #StayStrong
