What is Bullying
Aggressive behavior may be bullying depending on what happened, how often it happens and who it happens to.
There are 5 types of bullying: physical, verbal, emotional, mental and cyber-bullying.
Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students of all races and classes. 1 out of 4 kids is bullied and depending on their ages up to 43% of students have been bullied while online. Child and teen Bullying and Cyberbullying are at an all-time high. Some kids are so tormented that suicide has become an alternative for them. (stompoutbullying.org)

My name is Sonya J. Bowser and I created Zolie Zi as a face for bullying after feeling like I had no voice due to being bullied on the job. The bullying happened on a daily basis and it eventually caused me to loose my job of 2 years while my bullies remained employed. The feeling that I felt of no hope and despair is a feeling that I wouldn’t want anyone to be left with after a bout with a bully. I also experienced bullying as a child about my lips and nose and it was something that stuck with me for many years.
Bullying is a serious issue and can cause a lot of emotional and mental anguish on its victims.
My mission is to use Zolie Zi as a face and voice to encourage children to use the power of their voices and to believe that there are people out there willing to help them if they would just use their voice to Speak Up and Speak Out against bullying.
Bullying can happen to anyone at any age and it does not discriminate.
