Having faced bullying in the past, Ms. Leone shares I AM SOMEONE’S commitment to end bullying, and will be involved in helping to spread the word through personal appearances, digital and social media campaigns. Ms. Leone will deliver the message to youth- explaining how the 211 texting program works for youth who are experiencing issues with bullying and may be scared and not know what to do.

Greg Moore, President of I AM SOMEONE, Mayor of Port Coquitlam –

We are very excited to have Ms. Leone come on board with us to help elevate the message that youth can text 211 to get support and to talk to someone. Sienna has felt the effects and experienced being bullied and as a result she will make a fantastic spokesperson. This partnership will kick off with an elevated campaign, to broaden its reach regionally then provincially and ultimately across Canada.”

Sienna Leone, Official Spokesperson of I AM SOMEONE, Miss Teenage BC 2015 –

“Being invited to work with I AM SOMEONE and be the spokesperson of such an amazing organization is truly an incredible opportunity. I feel blessed to help an anti-bullying organization because it is something that hits home for me and is close to my heart. This announcement helps me and the organization, together we can make a difference. When you have a group of people ready to stand up to bullying, you are destined to make a change, and that is exactly what I see is going to happen.”
