Kylie Jenner Launches an Anti-Bullying Campaign #IAmMoreThan
It’s no secret that the media are drawn to Kylie Jenner like moths to a flame. Controversy and publicity are constantly surrounding her as it exploits every detail of her personal life. She seems to be the go-to girl for racy headlines and for haters to target.
It seems only fitting that Kylie is channelling that experience to kick-start her own anti-bullying campaign, #IAmMoreThan. Taking to Instagram yesterday, Kylie pledged that for the, “next six days, I will be sharing stories of 6 incredible people who have become heroes in their own way by taking #bullying and turning it into something positive.”
Kylie is keen to make a change, and encourage a positive sense of self, and gushed about how she fell in love with the people she talked to and really bonded with them.
The first #IAmMoreThan story was posted today, to Jenner's Instagram page, and it’s one that Kylie has taken some amazing advice from! She revealed that Renee taught her that she is more than all the negative comments she reads in the media.
#Day1 - Renee DuShane (@ALittlePieceofInsane) a 21 year old college student who was born with #PfiefferSyndrome. Renee described it as “a genetic disorder where the bones in my face don’t really know how to fuse correctly so part of my jaw is really small. I had to have surgery when I was born so that my brain could grow.” Renee is so strong willed and a super intelligent girl who told me that while growing up she never had many issues with bullying. "I went to school with all the same kids all the way through high school. Right around senior year, I started getting very anxious about having to explain my condition to all of the new people I would meet in college. I started going on Tumblr and saw lots of profiles of positive, confident people” that inspired her to start sharing her photos even with her insecurities. “It’s so hard to keep myself from responding to the negative comments,” she told me. “Even harder is keeping my friends from getting angry.” It's so important to have a great group of friends. Renee also told me about the tattoo she recently got of her life motto: Stay Strong, Always Love. “Loving is always going to be a better place than hating,” she shared. Check out Renee’s Instagram @ALittlePieceofInsane - she’s showing the world #IAmMoreThan my forehead. I love you Renee! She is so awesome & inspiring. Renee taught ME that #IAmMoreThan the negative comments that I read.
We’re hoping this campaign gets backed by everyone!
Kudos to Kylie!!
