“I am honored to serve as a National Spokesperson for the Ambassador for Kids Program, in addition to being on the Board of Directors. I have witnessed and felt the effects of peer abuse and bullying. These are such serious problems. My role enables me to have a voice, and my goal is to help others realize that they can stop the bullying and abuse by using their voice. It is extremely important to use your voice to stand up against bullies and not become a silent bystander, whether you are being bullied and or watching it happen to someone else.”
Jolie Montlick is a National Spokesperson for the Ambassador for Kid’s Program (a4KClub.org), as well as a Founding Member. She is 14 years old and resides in North Carolina.
“I am honored to serve as a National Spokesperson for the a4KClub. Bullying and child abuse are such major problems. They can happen to any of us. All of us are responsible for speaking up when we see it. Together we can stop the abuse and the bullying. As a spokesperson I am hoping that by seeing my leadership other kids will realize that they have a voice, and that they can and need to speak up to stop the bullying and abuse.”

In addition to being an instructor and volunteering to teach regular classes to kids and adults, Jolie has volunteered to teach free basic self defense to approximately 1000 kids. Jolie loves helping people and recently stated: “Being a Black Belt is so much more than being able to defend yourself.
