Hello everyone! FYI is proud to announce that we will be offering tutoring to students virtually. Please go to fightyourignorance.com and click on the fyi tutoring program tab to learn more information. As you know I have been an advocate for youth since I was 15 and have been participating in programs that empower children since I was 11 years old. When I started Fight Your Ignorance (FYI) my goal was to put a stop to bullying and expose the different ways that kids get bullied. I have traveled to schools where students were experiencing different forms of bullying, which ranged from exclusion, physical violence, to cyber bullying. Since I started Fight Your Ignorance I have graduated college and am now passionate about becoming a teacher. My goal is to provide a healthy and safe environment so that students can enjoy learning. Obviously, in noway, could I have imagined that our schools would be shut down because of the COVID-19 virus. My job applications for a teaching position at a school in New York City have been placed on hold, as there are many uncertainties at the moment. However, I do understand that many parents are faced with having to homeschool their children, while maintaining their job(s). I have talked to some of my anti-bullying advocates and we have decided that we would like to virtually offer our services online to help you home school your children. I’ve attached 4 bios, including mine, with tutoring fees. If you are experiencing hardship, please don’t be discouraged, we would love to help.

Hey, squash-da-bully nation :) A recent powerful movement has been created. The #MeToo movement was created by a celebrity community after one actress spoke up about being sexually harassed by a person of power in the film industry. These persons of power are fortunately getting busted for it. How it relates to our cause is it is like being bullied in the sense that the sexual offender was making them tolerate the abuses in order to keep or get their job. This is literally the definition of bullying, which is,“Using superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants.” These victims are being forced into doing something they don’t want to do by intimidation from people whose status is superior to them in their industry. By relating sexual harassment to bullying it shows how there are different types of bullying to think about aside from the traditional bullying we relate to when talking about bullying. I hope in some way or another you show you stand with them. There a lot of photos, and articles that have been going around based on the movement. You will find many actors and actresses speaking up and outing their abusers. Let us work together to spread the word for these victims. #WeBelieveYou
Suggestions on how you can spread the word:
- Check out the #MeToo photos and take your own and post them on your social media accounts.
- Post on your social media accounts your opinions on the movement.
- Create your own videos discussing the movement, and post it on your social media accounts.
- Speak up if it is happening to you, because by speaking up not only do you empower yourself but you empower other victims. There is power in numbers! Remember this isn’t just for celebs only, this is for the abused no matter what race, gender or sexual orientation you are.
- Share on your social media accounts articles and photos you find on the movement.
- Here are some links to articles written about the #Metoo movement, and photos in solidarity:
