For the Bullied and Beautiful

“They asked me what I wanted to be, then told me what not to be.” Shane Koyczan makes powerful spoken-word poetry and music. His poem, “To This Day” is an emotional journey through the anguish of being bullied and the will to survive.


Shane’s poem is brilliantly illustrated in 20-second segments by 80 animators from around the world, and accompanied by violinist Hannah Epperson.
