Once Bullied Teenager Creates App So Kids Will Never Have to Sit Alone Again
Meet Natalie Hampton, a 16-year-old Californian responsible for the creation of "Sit With Us," an anti-bullying app launched on September 9, dedicated to eliminating any and all "Mean Girls" situations.
Inspired by personal memories of spending her entire seventh grade school year eating alone, Hampton, now a socially happy junior in high school, believed a cell phone app was necessary in order to eliminate unnecessary rejection.
And the app is already receiving an outburst of positive feedback. "People are already posting open lunches at my school," Hampton told NPR's "All Things Considered," a small act of kindness that will really make a difference in so many lives.
Have a student in elementary, middle, or high school with a smartphone? Spread the word and have them download the app to begin putting an end to bullying. For free.
