You know that saying “Shoot for the moon”? Former GL intern Makaila Nichols is doing just that—and she’s taking kids everywhere along for the ride.
After the success of her book Blatantly Honest: Normal Teen, Abnormal Life, Makaila moved onto school speaking engagements and founded an anti-bullying nonprofit called the Blatantly Honest Foundation.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic’s school closures gave some bullying victims a reprieve, the move to online day-to-day struck a chord for those struggling with cyberbullying. Makaila wanted to make a difference—and do so safely. “I wanted to make sure no kid ever had to be looked down upon again,” she shares. Operation: Inclusion was born.
