Description.


This app is about victims of bullying who can all connect to each other so no one feels left out. Don't be shy because other people have had the same problem as you. If you feel alone this app can help you connect with other people.


Why is this issue personal to you?


This app is personal to me because to many people are committing suicide because people are making them feel isolated and that they are alone. That's why this app is designed to help and stop suicide rates.

This app is personal to me because people around the world are committing suicide, and feel like no one loves them. people that are bullied feel alone and that there is no one that cares for them. It's sad because all people should be equal, and no one should treat someone else with harm.

This app is very smart because lots of people are committing suicide because people are bulling them and feel uncomfortable and that no ones likes them and that they have no friends. ~Paige Kemp OPS
