16-year-old on a mission to end bullying
Kid Wonders: At just 9 years old, Tharon Trujillo invented an award winning baby gate. Being thrust into the public at a young age helped him to overcome a speech impairment and auditory processing delay. However, the bullying Tharon endured because of these disabilities left an indelible scar, which deepened when a friend committed suicide because she was bullied relentlessly. Now 16, Tharon is Founder and CEO of "TruKidz" an organization which raises awareness about bullying through working with local celebrities and creating effective anti-bullying campaigns.
