Nickelodeon star Rachel Crow, 14, recently spoke about bullying with students at the Bridge Teen Center in Orland Park as part of the 2012 DoSomething.org Bully Project.
During the discussion, students discussed bullying within their schools and ways to be proactive in bullying situations. Crow spoke about her experiences being bullied.
“The Bridge feels like a second home. Here, I don’t have to worry about bullying,” said Houston Weatherly, a sophomore at Bremen High School.
“You feel welcomed as soon as you walk into the door,” said Amber Holup, a freshman at Tinley Park High School.
After the one-hour event, students had a chance to meet and take photos with Crow. Besides her work on Nickelodeon, Crow finished fifth on the first season of “The X Factor.” She quickly became a fan favorite and darling among the “X Factor” judges.
Crow released her self-titled EP on June 26 on Columbia Records and is featured on Big Time Rush’s Summer Tour 2012 along with Cody Simpson.
Crow has starred on the television shows “Fred: The Show,” “Figure It Out” and “Big Time Rush.”
The Bridge Teen Center, 15555 S. 71st Court, Orland Park, is a nonprofit community center that was designed around the needs and interests of teens in the suburbs.
