Bullying Victim Spreads Message of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Taliya McNabb has been through more than most sixth grade Charles Henderson Middle School students. She's battled cancer and has been bullied since the third grade.
Today, she let her peers know, just like Martin Luther King Jr., she's standing up against violence.
"They call me fat, ugly and bald-headed," McNabb says.
She says she's been bullied since the third grade.
But today her voice is being heard. McNabb was the guest speaker at the Martin Luther King Jr. Program at the Pike County Boys and Girls Club. Mazaria McNabb says it's nice to know organizations like this are behind her child.
"I don't think they should call anybody names," she says. "I say ignore them or tell a teacher or your mom."
McNabb's kidney cancer is in remission.
Troy City School officials say they have zero tolerance policy against bullying.
