Susane Colasanti - Keep Holding On

As a teenager author Susane Colasanti was bullied by her peers and didn’t have anyone to turn to for help.

Since then she has decided to use her experiences as a base for her novel Keep Holding On, where we learn that it does get better, it’s ok to let your freak flag fly, and help is available if you mutter the courage to ask for help.

Get help if you're being bullied or know someone who is: 
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 
Your Life Your Voice 
It Gets Better Project 
Trevor Project

Resources for parents & educators: 
Teaching Tolerance 
International Bullying Prevention Association 
Stop Bullying Now! 
GLSEN 
The Ophelia Project

Music used during the interview: Avril Lavigne's Keep Holding On and Lady Gaga's Born This Way.
