Genius Hour

Posted: 4/4/2018

High school student Addison, in her senior began a project called Genius Hour. Each student selected a topic of their choice, researched it, and then developed a presentation, video, or product Addison chose bullying because it is an issue that she has faced since elementary school. She knew that it affects a wide variety of students all over the world, yet realized it doesn’t get as much attention and awareness as it should. Addison made posters that displayed facts about bullying and statistics about it as well. She posted these resources in her classroom in hopes to draw awareness to this common issue. Throughout the semester she continually researched the effects of bullying and how many suffer from it around the world. Those statistic showed the overall percentage of how big of an impact bullying has on our society. At the end of the semester, she presented her speech in which she spoke from the heart.

Addison shared, “I genuinely hope that I changed the way my classmates view bullying and how to treat people, as well as for anyone who views this video. I really enjoyed this project and I aim to continue to raise awareness for bullying and for all the victims that suffer from it. They deserve to be heard and supported, and I am determined to be one person who stands up for them. I hope people learn to realize that we should accept one another for who they are, because that is another thing that I realized when doing this project— everyone is different, yet everyone should be respected. It only takes one person to make a difference.”
