Why did you want to become a TIGER?

TIGER performed for my 6th grade class and I was hooked. I wanted to help ease the stress of bullying on kids.

Have you experienced any of the issues that TIGER addresses and how did you get through them? And what advice would you offer kids in the same situation?

I’ve been bullied off and on but didn’t know the lessons taught through TIGER so I worked it out myself. My advice would be to listen to our message and put a stop to the bullying.

What reaction or memorable experienced has touched you the most since becoming a TIGER?

Having kids or parents tell us we’ve made a difference in their lives.

What kind of music is on your I-pod? Name a few artists we’d find or a favorite tune or two…

What inspires you?
