Casey McQuillen: The Next Taylor Swift
Meet Casey McQuillen: American Idol contestant, singer, songwriter, anti-bullying advocate (30,000 students and counting) and self-proclaimed klutz/expert at embarrassing herself.
What’s most disarming and surprising (in a good way) is how honest and authentic Casey is. This is not someone who started an anti-bullying campaign because it was cool, this is someone who fell into it by happen-stance, found she loved it and had a passion for it and has a burning desire to not let children suffer.
And they’re lessons she learnt the hard way, growing up in school and being the victim of bullying herself.
This is one person whom I truly hope changes and reaches the entire world.
