I'm still baffled about this: I was invited to give a presentation in Brantford about social media and bullying as well as mental health. I had been working on this presentation for many days, and it took me hours to prepare the presentation.
This topic is important to me because, if you remember, I was bullied about a year ago online. It was an honour to be able to share my experience with others and help professionals and the community understand what they can do intervene.
Today - on October 23, 2013 - I delivered the presentation to a group of teachers, parents, healthcare professionals, police officers, firefighters, Members of Parliament, and more. It was a wonderful experience and I really enjoyed it. And now, for the FIRST TIME EVER, I have recorded it for all of you to watch! It will be the first time most of you have ever seen me, so I hope I don't disappoint you! Please take the time to watch me present - I spent a lot of time preparing for it! Remember to comment and tell me what you think about my presentation and to share this with others!
Thanks for everyone's love, support, and kindness! I wouldn't be here if it were not for all the support and love of everyone in my life and on this blog. God bless all of you, and I pray that He continues to strengthen each of you (and me!).

Now, enough of me babbling on and on...watch my presentation! And please do not forget to share it on your email, text messages, Facebook. Twitter, or whatever you use - we want this message and video to go viral! Help spread the word about social media, mental health, and bullying!
