It’s no surprise that bullying in schools is a hot topic. In fact, I don’t know anybody that hasn’t either encountered or witnessed bullying as a kid. To deal with this issue head-on, we brought in the WWE’s little boogie man Chris Hollyfield. At 4’4″ tall, his personal story of being bullied moves students to a decision point, saying “enough is enough.” We had outstanding feed back from the teachers, administrators and students at the nine schools we visited. Along with us, they feel that it truly made a major impact in the day-to-day choices of students and how they speak and act towards each other.

In addition to his acting, Chris is also the founder of 3D T.E.A.M. and works with kids encouraging them to do their best at everything they do. He is a little person with a huge heart. He gives back to his community and definitely knows what bullying is…Measuring 4-foot-4, an unprecedented motivational speaker, he is perceived as an undersized man in an oversized world, and maximizes his visual difference to help students recognize, and avoid, teasing and bullying among their peers. Chris has an enormous impact on kids because of his experiences and accomplishments in life.
