Jessica Barba, who attends Longwood High School in Middle Island, (Long Island N.Y.) created a video featuring a 12-year-old girl named Hailey who kills herself after being bullied on Facebook and at school. It is not a true story and video makes that very clear. The school suspended Jessica for her efforts. “I just created the video in order to raise awareness of the major issue that’s bullying,” Barba told Matt Lauer 0n “TODAY.” “I don’t understand why I’m being punished for it.” She now enjoys the limelight of a viral video and has contributed more to the cause than she could have ever imagined. Congrats Jessica.
