Demi Lovato is continuing her campaign against bullying by talking about the issue in the New York Post.
The teen star is well known for speaking out against bullying in Tweets, and has been a supporter of Teens Against Bullying since 2009.
“Bullying is a very serious thing to me, I’ve witnessed it first hand – I was bullied myself when I was 12,” she told the NY Post. “I want to be able to help other girls around [my sister’s] age come into their own with a strong confidence in their skin, their size, who they are and everything about themselves.”
Demi also talked about her charity work and her status as a role model: "Nobody wants pressure and wants to be under a magnifier glass, but there are ways to be role models without claiming to be perfect.
“I’m learning and dealing with experiences that all teenagers go through. The way I want to be a role model is not by not making mistakes . . . but by helping people overcome things from the obstacles that I’ve overcome.
“That’s how I want to use my voice and that’s how I want to be a role model.”
