Alex grew up while attending public school, doing “different” things and having experiences that his peers didn’t have. While kids were playing soccer, Alex was touring the country. He was bullied for being different. He was judged and bullied in school, and online. He knows what it’s like and how hard it is for kids. He has always said, “Hey, I’m a strong kid. I can deal. I have amazing parents and things that other kids say can be hurtful, but I have an amazing support system around me to deal with these issues. I feel bad for the kids that don’t have the same level of support that I do. I hate that some people can be so nasty to others. I know it’s hard. I just always try and tell kids to find a support system, and it will get better.”
