Debate team - Yikes! How about the ABC's (the Anti-Bullying Committee) - not a chance. A group of desperate losers want her to be in their rap video. Sounds like fun, but does she dare? And when getting too friendly with the chess club nerd threatens her chances with the popular girls it seems she might not fit anywhere. Is she brave enough to stand on her own and be herself? Caroline's been told a million times "be yourself." But how do you do that if you don't know who "yourself" is yet? Written and directed by Robert Randall for the Young Actors Project.

Thank God December is over worst month of my life my dad had to change jobs and so without any warning our whole family had to move from Winnipeg to Vancouver I didn't even get to say goodbye to my friends at school if that wasn't bad enough Christmas was the worst ever but my mom has this amazing way of putting a positive spin on everything that drives me totally insane you are gonna make so many Friends at your new school she thinks this is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a family as if starting a new school wasn't hard enough I had to do it in the middle of the year when everything's already established what classes you have who your friends are even what desk you said that we have a new students welcome to Ellen Cooper Caroline okay can you all please take out your Textbooks you should have read chapter seven over the break on elements and compounds I never had to try to make friends before I always just had them I never had to try to fit in I just did at my old school I was actually pretty popular so all this new stuff that we and of course my mom had a wonderfully positive suggestion for me join clubs it's January they've started already I'm sure I'll be fine let me talk to the principal for you know I was feeling so Insecure about the school new school thing and I actually took her advice which I never do I tried the debate team first but that was kind of scary the only sports team I was able to join this late in the year was dodgeball but that was even scary so my only option was the chess club which had lots of openings but that was scary in its own way too so I decided joining clubs wasn't the right way to go to capture my popularity I just have to let it happen Naturally forcing it might make me seem desperate and we all know nobody likes desperate yeah right are you coming back tomorrow I'm not sure chest is my thing well that's cool you can play Chinese stickers as well this is one girl Jasmine she's so good at Chinese circus she's not even Chinese one time should have a remember I was in one move wow that's a lot I figured that you don't have any friends yet so I wanted to reduce myself I'm merely Caroline oh we love that movie Coraline is like my five-star favorite all-time she finds his door in her room leads this alternate universe where parents all these but night zombies I still related to them actually I never saw it Oh up on my DVD tomorrow and you can borrow it unless you want to go to my house and watch it [Music] that was close Halon reminds me of this girl from my Old school Breanna fry she used to get humiliated so bad The humiliation seemed alive and well at this school too especially for those who had to walk down the a wing at lunch oh sweet how long right now this is garbage Oh nail them again nobody seemed brave enough to stand up to these jerks and they were said suck ups whenever a teacher walk by oh hi mr.

know Febuary is anti-bullying month so we're preparing we're going an anti-bullying committee and we're looking for members what would a member have to do well it would operate much like a neighborhood watch program we all need members in each wing of the school that will monitor student activity and report on any bullying that They seek wait we just like think on people well thanks not a word we like to use you monitor and report and then anyone who does get bullied we believe that if one person's a victim of bullying we're all victims Aminu we're really excited about the ABCs it's gonna make our awesome school even awesomer and if we can eliminate bling the student council is gonna receive a grant a five hundred dollars So we want everyone on board meeting is tomorrow at 3:00 okay thanks as pathetic as they are I have to admire those losers for never giving up guys what I call this here no you cannot just call these single like that Leo had can you've ever seen me rock off my bedroom I sound like Bono you can't be a lead singer in a rock band with hair like yours alright you know what yeah ok girls don't care about your hair care about your voice it's Actually been part that you're seeing girls don't care how you sound it's all about the looks leo even any of us know how to play an instrument oh wait guys you know trashes give me a better job Live Love largest to pick up garbage [Laughter] okay everyone baby meeting can begin where is everybody I guess this is it wait a minute There should be it's very like so cool maybe we should postpone this room we can't do ABC's like this honeymoon popular more popular people would be better um I'm afraid we're gonna have to postpone the first ABC meeting due to low turnout oh I'm just gonna start for another 15 minutes oh they just don't help they love this they get poses like all the time okay manager [Music] Haley is better than the sweater yeah it is do you like it totally fresh why thank you Oh figuring out the friend thing was getting more and more complicated [Music] those are there from germination yeah damnation I didn't have the guts to tell them they actually used to be my grandma's there from the store and Winnipeg can't believe Jack Mason has different styles in different cities why Can't they have the same thing everywhere like normal stores okay connecting the label sure oh wait these are my definitions but I thought they were so he didn't even let's eat it's this old store that doesn't make this thing right so you shop it all the stores that only exist anymore I actually didn't buy this my grandma did your grandma buys your clothes that's really sweet it seemed like this notion of bullying Was everywhere you turn draw that at one day don't forget to wear your pink but given this hypersensitivity to it all I have to say not many people really seem to get it and it wasn't just the girls [Music] hey where's your pink what he said where's your pink it's anti-bullying day they're supposed to be wearing pink I didn't have anything pink what about your sisters yeah she's got pink I've seen her wear It then did you even try it on yeah it was too big it was not what about her socks yeah you could've worn pink socks she doesn't have any pink socks you probably didn't even look come on guys just believe me you'd get the glass what's the rush you got people you need to bully or something just cuz I'm not wearing pink doesn't mean oh boy it means you support the bullies I don't support the bullies I just don't happen you pink clothes Well it's your lucky day I got an extra shirt right here put it on that's all right if you don't put it on Bali's win [Music] just say no to bullies [Music] why did they do to you I was nothing but it's a bully report okay nobody it wasn't big deal you're a bullying you I can handle it that doesn't matter but the student council look into it that's what they're Here for actually I don't think we can accept this why not it should really be filled out by victim no I'm fine okay then look we're all victims that's what you said well maybe you could just wait till next week why if our school has a clean record with no important bullying our student council will get a $500 grant we were just picking out our student council jackets a student council looks good We'll be a source of high for all students and that will make everyone happy which will eliminate billion and that's what we're all here for so I think the best way to deal with this it's just ignore it for now it's not the plan sensitive to this because it's a very important issue we just have to deal with it on a case-by-case basis thanks for coming to us always here [Music] believe it or not Jason getting wrestled Into a pink shirt on anti-bullying day was not the most humiliating event I witnessed that week Thursday was oral presentation day and mrs. Jones English class one day it was pretty obvious he was lying about their most embarrassing [Music] some were pretty lame like my flight was undone I was in the girls bathroom well other you seem quite real I wanted to make mine real too I wanted to tell everyone how once I told Alan Perkins that I liked him and how he told me that he was flattered and how I was too embarrassed to talk to him again after that but I had chickened out I was at my friend's birthday party and we're all gonna go outside I went first but I matched into a glass door really hard that actually was true it just wasn't the most embarrassing moment for me thankfully nobody knew me well enough to Call me on it Haley on the other hand wasn't so lucky and so we were like totally wearing the same clothes I was like oh my god shut up where someone dare to kiss yours if you wouldn't do it [Music] Miss Jones class bonding assignment definitely brought us closer together just not in the way she wanted I don't think and things I think they would go from bad to worse when the next day Simon the bully got paired with Bonnie the bully on their planet art project but surprisingly they managed to get along just fine maybe it was because their project was about the planet Venus and Venus was the Roman goddess of love you smell like so thanks okay maybe that was a stupid theory but there seemed to be something to it because after that art project not only were Bonnie and Simon nice to each other they also started being nice to other people too All this made me come to a very powerful realization love conquers heat it looks good thanks but that doesn't mean the forces of the dark side give up so now you're sharing the make up of losers I was just helping her out and why are you not going James today I guess I didn't get the text whatever it's not like we have to just like clones everyday hello I got Simon told her to dress like that is that true is this what Simple Simon lengths Simon Doesn't tell me what to wear did he tell you what to think I can tell you what to say tell me anything guys in this school Curtis Anderson 18 Peters Cooper go make some what's the mouths who are you I don't know I think I've been told a million times be it yourself but how do you do that if you don't know who yourself is yet I mean seriously does anybody know who they are in middle school Oh peach fuzz needs you Where peach fuzz yo we are totally making a rap video gonna be off the train insane yeah and we need girls like you right okay well will you do it come on you want me to be in your rap videos yeah I was flattered enough but girls in rap videos don't usually get a lot of Hispanics ours won't be that way no no you don't have to were like we're bikini or like shake your thing anything it'll be totally respectful oh yeah I wanted to say yes but I wish there was brave Enough to say yes being in a rap video would probably be fun but I don't know I guess that's not who I am at least I don't think it is I guess courage is what it takes to stand out and try something different like that Haley seemed to have a lot of courage oh hey you guys need a new treasure yeah what would the treasure have to do mostly keep tracking the money oh I can do that counting is always one of my strongest Qualities so you think II am running yeah I've always got like straight A's in math it's more than just counting Haley we need to get votes - OH and not just to win to get nominated that form has to be signed by six students oh you might want to leave it someone with more of a realistic we don't want to leave paper well there are five people in my chess club you'd need one more don't worry you guys want to sign up for me Well you see that would be inappropriate for us as members sure you understand yeah right of course of course it's easier to have courage when you have friends except when friends get in your way and it seems courage is needed for more than just standing out it's also needed for standing up but that's hard too especially when standing by is so much easier dude just leave him alone who's Gonna make me but maybe all it takes is one person I am anyone else and others might show it to and me is Simon check out these wannabe gangsters this should be fine you know in class how sometimes everyone's afraid to answer a question but once one person does it then the others do too well that's just what seemed to happen after Nathan stood up to Scott other People got favored - what did they say to you [Music] hi can I help you I do not mean to wax my mustache let me tell you what I heard you guys are loves you friends and if you keep spreading rumors about me I'm gonna tell everyone they used to wear Little Mermaid pajamas and I have the pictures to prove it witnessing all this bravery gave me an idea You still want to be on student council yeah I'll be your last signature yeah but I need you to do something for me first anything anything anything we'll do it what boys will be in your rap video I never agreed to be fun no we had to do a shaker thing wait I thought you said this was gonna be respective heaters by shaker things let me shake your thang thing just her thing who's going to see this everybody have you guys ever done something like This before no do you have any idea what you're doing no by doing this are we we gonna embarrass ourselves in front of the whole school maybe yeah so the one big thing I discovered today courage is contagious and sometimes you just got to take a chance okay I will do it [Applause] [Music] and and once you go in about it better Than you oh yeah oh oh yeah oh don't record this no church mmm I smell amazing you smell like silk I never even illuminate believe that once again having a steam castle it looks good will be this a source up one more time I look more like a rock star let's look ready bow-chicka-wow-wow chicka wow wow that's right everyone you still wear Little Mermaid project [Music] [Music]
