Beat the Bullies
619. Chloe Hine
The founder of ‘Beat the Bullies’ supports victims of bullying through the power of music and song writing.
Chloe, from Havant, set up ‘Beat the Bullies’, a charity that helps victims of bullying turn their negative experiences into something positive through music and song writing.
With the support of O2, 16 year old Chloe has created a website (www.beatthebullies.org) featuring an online guide to making music, as well as advice on how to recognise and tackle bullying.
Chloe was presented with her award by the Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson MP, at the launch of this year’s #iWill Ambassadors programme, held at the Houses of Parliament.
In a personal letter to Chloe, Prime Minister Theresa May said:
“By creating ‘Beat the Bullies’ you are supporting people to recognise and tackle bullying and helping young people who have been bullied to channel their experiences into something positive.”
“Winning the Points of Light award fills me with an unbelievable amount of joy! I’m so grateful that my hard work and dedication has been recognised. I do what I do because I love it and there is no better feeling than hearing the words thank you from someone you’ve helped. 3 years ago I believed that all I deserved was to die and now I have won the Point of Light award. There really is light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you so much for this incredible award and opportunity, I can’t express enough how grateful and excited I am about winning.”
