Speaking Out Against Bullying
Noella Klawitter has a history of turning adversity into something positive. Noella Power, as she was called growing up, is a graduate of Charlottetown Rural and UPEI. She then moved to Ottawa to find work. And it was there, in 2002, that she began to lose her sight. She has a degenerative condition, that has left her with limited vision. In 2007, someone suggested she try track. Since then, she has become one of Canada's best visually impaired runners....winning triple gold at the Pan Am Games.
This week she is travelling to schools across Prince Edward Island...talking about her sport...but also about her experience of being bullied as a teen. Noella dropped by our Island Morning studio to share her story.
