The little girl’s mother asks her daughter to talk about the incident and to tell the camera how she responded to the young boy’s remark. What response was that? One that goes a little something like this, “I didn’t come here to make a fashion statement, I came here to learn—not look pretty!” Is that not the sassiest, most confident and respectful comment you’ve ever heard? This little girl owned that bully, for sure!

Hats off to this little girl, and big props to her mother who taught her to stand up for herself, and to be confident while always respecting others. You go, girl! We could all benefit from being just as bold and confident as this young lady!
