This Body-Shamed News Anchor's Lesson About Self-Worth

This fearless woman, Jennifer Livingston, a news anchor for WKBT News 8 in Wisconsin is AHH-MAZING!! A TV viewer used the web (via direct email) to bully her and call her fat, and she calls him out on it. Watch this video and get ready to be inspired!

We need more people like her in this world... willing to take a stand, willing to defend themselves and demand change for our society and children! Her passion and spirited personality is the kind that I am drawn to. What she says at the end of the video is so empowering and it's the kind of message our youth need to hear...

"Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. Learn from my experience, that..." cruel-words-of-one-quote

AMEN sister! What you have accomplished in this one courageous act speaks volumes about you and your legacy. Thank you for being bold and brave, and for being a leader in your community and beyond. Cheers to you!
