High school isn’t easy. Jimmy’s high school experience was especially difficult. Now a student at the United World College in Montezuma, NM, Jimmy went through years of being bullied. Jimmy’s story was part of a radio show put on by YMP and the Santa Fe High School’s Student Wellness Action Team that was created to illuminate the dangers of bullying to help reduce the terrible trend. Please lend your ears to this intensely raw story that details the horror of being bullied to put a stop to the violence.
The Santa Fe High School Student Wellness Team (SWAT) decided to better their community and peers by creating a radio program dedicated to reducing bullying. This beautifully interwoven poem, written and performed by Ariana Maestas with performance help from Alix Monastero is meant to explore the ways people react to bullying differently. Her simple structure and narrative flow makes this piece extremely powerful and intense. Please take the time to learn from the heart about gender differences in bullying situations.
Youth Media Project and SWAT members from Santa Fe High and Capshaw Middle School have come together to produce an Audio Revolution! show focusing on bullying. The show features personal narratives from students experiencing bullying, an interview with a bullying specialist, a radio drama about cyberbullying and much more! Take a listen to this heartfelt and inspiring show!
Join us while Audio Revolution! takes on this increasingly important issue. We’ll investigate the busy lives of teens and what they do to cope with the stress, anxiety and depression that is ever-present in high schools and colleges today. Featured in this intense show are pieces from Zoe Ballargin, Ethan Parrot and Savannah Chapman-Martinez.
