We here at the office were contacted by a 15-year-old girl who writes her own original songs, named Megan Landry. Megan sent us a very well-done and inspiring song she wrote herself. She is absolutely inspirational and we are glad to be in-touch with such an incredible person! We asked Megan to tell us a little about her opinion on bullying as well as something about herself:
“My bully story is simple. I was the target of mean girl stuff in grade 8 and part of grade 9. It’s an awful feeling not knowing when they will make fun of you and exclude you and give you dirty looks. They used to be my friends. Everybody gets bullied though at some point, it’s a power thing. If you look scared or show it bothers you … your done! I learned that one quickly. And that’s what inspired me to write this song. They will never tear me down. I will only get stronger. I won’t say it doesn’t hurt but I wasn’t going to be anyones victim. I hope my song will give other kids the power “to look right over their heads”. Because in the end bullying is really about power. Why give anyone that satisfaction over you! I didn’t, and I won’t and I hope you don’t either.
Music helps me get through a lot of things, so I write songs. I consider myself an artist as much as I am a musician because I do a lot of other type of artwork. Songwriting and composing music though is what I love the most. I’ve been playing piano since I was four and writing music since I was eleven. I also play some guitar and drums. I’ve won a few songwriting competitions, and I’ve established a fairly good following on YouTube. I’m starting to love the performing side of my music and really enjoy making my own videos.”
