Why the Sharks are getting involved
- Bullying is long term, on-going violence, threats of violence and antagonisation.
- People bully through lack of self esteem and self worth. Trying to 'prove' themselves.
- Positive male role models are the main influencer of a persons self esteem and self worth. Sharks, along with Brett Murray are aiming to be those positive role models.
- Knowing your self worth and value, you can dare to dream.
