Never Fight Alone: Helping Teens with Shelomo Solson
Shelomo Solson is the founder of Teenage Impact. When you look or talk to him, he seems motivated and confident. He wasn’t always like this. Below is his condensed story – the story of an underdog.
Shelomo was bullied starting in 3rd grade. He dreaded going to school for ten years because of it. He was bullied for his accent, ethnicity, religion, athleticism, weight, height, the clothes he wore, not having a girlfriend, the list can goes on.
Sometimes he would come home with bruises crying. He didn’t want to defend himself or tell an adult because he was afraid of being known as a “snitch” or getting beat up harder. He made his parents not say anything.
Now, Shelomo runs Teenage Impact, where he helps teenagers overcome their challenges.
