Overview

Counsellor, life coach and CEO and co-founder of Beat Bullying with Confidence Ron Prasad returns to Connection Matters Radio to share personal experiences of being bullied. He talks also of some simple advice that can make a change in anyone’s life.

” I was subjected to bullying at school and when I was playing sports for clubs,” he told CMR.

“Mostly because of the colour of my skin – I’ve got dark skin and I also had a speech impediment when I was a child so I had difficulty in speaking. And those things made me a prime target for bullying.

“My friend, Gus, who is the co-founder of Beat Bullying With Confidence Foundation, he was I migrant kid and he could barely speak English, so he also had a big target on his back.

“So after going through all that, Gus and I decided, ‘Look, we went through this. We all were overcame this. Let’s share our story and provide hope for kids who are getting bullied right now, for whatever reason. Colour of their skin, their religion, their life choices, anything. Let’s give them hope. Let’s remind them that if we can overcome it, so can they’.”
