Often bullied about her appearance and personality, Kristian from young wanted to understand why. So, instead of talking with her fists, she spoke with her mouth, using this as a better way to handle confrontation. In doing this she realized that the people bullying her were either going through something or was ashamed of their own imperfections and feared people bullying them. Oddly enough, a lot of Kristian’s bullies became people that she could talk to, continuing on to present. This made Kristian realize if we talk to understand this could change how or more so why people bullied others.
Always active in her community, Kristian’s mother made sure she gave back by volunteering in various programs something she still does to this day. #IFYOUKNEWME… was just another way for Kristian to not only reach out to her community but to the world giving people the opportunity to not only share experiences to uplift, but to have what she likes to call “having a conversation”, teaching people to talk more and not judge. Kristian’s goal is to take this beyond social media where it has grown but in hopes this would be something taught from young how bullying affects not only the victim but family and friends as well.
