I have been having a great time visiting schools and neighborhoods, meeting awesome new friends, just like you. Many kids, teens and grownups have joined my "Bee a Good Neighbor" Campaign to end Bullying. You are invited to join too. I have discovered that the more we work together, the stronger WE become. When we treat ourselves and others with respect and kindness, and remind others to do the same, WE CAN MAKE BULLYING DISAPPEAR. school program

I travel with my best buddies, Juan and Curtis, the awesome hip-hop dance duo who make up RE-FL3X. Together, we teach lessons about personal responsibility and respect through music, stories and dance. The Posse sometimes joins us too. They are young, talented dancers and musicians who bring lots of energy and excitement to our positive message.
