Inspiring Teenager Jaylen Arnold Tackles Bullying Worldwide
Jodie & Soda speak with an inspiring teenager Jaylen Arnold who has taken the world by storm by forming Jaylens Challenge, a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to promoting awareness and prevention of bullying through education and community:
At the tender age of 8-years-old, Jaylen wanted to make a difference. In response to bullying, he wanted to fight back with words and experience, rather than with fists or name calling. Jaylen had suffered at the hands of bullies in school due to his disabilities making him an easy target.
