Lauren Parsekian is an American director and social activist who is known for co-founding the internationally recognized nonprofit organization ‘Kind Campaign’. The organization works towards bringing awareness of girl-against-girl harassment and bullying in educational institutes. Parsekian faced a lot of mental abuse and harassment during her middle school days from her fellow schoolmates, mostly girls. This led to a lot of health problems and almost made her take her own life. After recovering from the ill effects of these harassments, Parsekian realized she needed to do something to bring awareness about this serious issue, especially among young students. She made a video from the feedback of hundred different school students, all girls, about the bullying they had faced and how they reacted to it. She made a documentary titled ‘Finding Kind’ from those videos which is aimed at making students stand against bullying and help those who can’t help themselves. Her organization also provides online support to those students who reach out for help against bullying.
