Traciana Graves, founder of Project Bully Free Zone, enjoyed a successful career as a vocal artist, singing back-up vocals for sensations like Celine Dion. Eventually she started to feel like she wasn't doing enough with the 22 hours of her day when she wasn't performing on stage. Her childhood and young adult years had been plagued by bullying, and when the issue of bullying was brought to her attention again she felt that she needed to do something about it. Since January 2011 she has reached over 7,000 people with Project Bully Free Zone's workshops, which cater to schools and corporations who feel a need for bullying education and prevention.
