“There is no other human being or living creature in this world with your DNA. Do you know what that means? You are not only unique; you are significant. You were created with a value and purpose that no other person can fill or replace.”
~ Alyson Stoner
The movement against bullying with the 5th installment of Saving Our Daughters called Who Will Save The Little Girl continues to have many of the younger stars of Hollywood to step up for the cause. Actress Alyson Stoner was asked by the publishing company to lend her support by providing a powerful quote to inspire teen girls that have been affected by the growing epidemic of bullying.
“Based on so many incredible early film & television projects such as Cheaper by the Dozen starring Steve Martin, recurring roles on Disney’s hit series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and most recent musical TV movie Camp Rock and sequel, Camp Rock 2; we felt Alyson would be a phenomenal role model for our cause with our teen girls organizations that work with teens on self esteem issues,” stated author Curtis J. Benjamin of the book series.
Full Quote from Alyson
“There is no other human being or living creature in this world with your DNA. Do you know what that means? You are not only unique; you are significant. You were created with a value and purpose that no other person can fill or replace. Many people, out of their own struggles, try to paint your uniqueness as something negative since it may not conform to the popular standards in our culture. But if nobody is perfect, then no one rightfully deserves any kind of authority to undermine your life, your worth and your potential.
You are not defined by their hurtful words and actions. You are not even defined by your negative opinions of yourself! There’s no need to fight back or face this battle alone. Share your pain, anger, fear, shame and suffering with someone you trust. And if you wrestle with low self-esteem (which fluctuates due to many factors like appearance, friends, grades, etc.), remember self-respect — your innate worth that can never be taken or altered, no matter what changes around you! Walk confidently in this dignity, sister, and know your future is bright and filled with hope. I’m standing with you.”
