Meet our new heroine, the young Australian star of a recent anti-bullying campaign who bravely takes a stand against bullies.

As part of their new powerful campaign, The Allannah and Madeline Foundation and National Australia Bank are encouraging people to find a voice for someone who can't find theirs.

Almost half (49%) of children and young people in the UK say they have been bullied at school at some point in their lives.

While it may seem like harmless teasing on the outside, bullying can lead to serious problems such as self-harm, eating disorders and even suicide.

If you see someone getting bullied, say something.
