Its Important For Children To Realize Their Value, From Chelsea Clinton (VIDEO)

When it comes to advice and tips for young girls who are smart but who may not fit in, Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, had some fantastic insights to share with us.

“I definitely did not fit in!” Chelsea told us. As someone who identifies with children who are bullied or struggle with fitting in, Chelsea has taken strides as an advocate for children.

“It’s important for every girl or boy to realize their value and find ways in which they do fit in, even if it's not with the popular kids,” Chelsea told us.

Chelsea emphasized the importance of kids who feel targeted or bullied to ask for help or advice from a teacher, parent, mentor or some other community for support.

“None of us are alone,” she added. “We all have insecurities, and it’s important for those of use who can speak out to be candid and let people know that we all struggle,” Chelsea concluded.
