Social work student, award winning anti-bullying campaigner, motivational speaker
Anita Dennison is a 23-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 a horrific bullying campaign. I was very fortunate to find a silver lining 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.
Since setting up "Don't Bully!" in 2012, I have received a Diana Award for my work; shortlisted for a Spirit of Northern Ireland Award; been awarded a Points of Light award and have become an #iWill ambassador. These awards highlight the fact that no matter what you may go through in life, there is always a bright light at the end of your dark tunnel.
Stay strong, stay hopeful, I believe in you
