Teen Creates Anti-Bullying App "Sit With Us" To Help students Survive The High-School CafeteriaBeing a teenager is hard enough, you’re still learning about yourself and how the world works, the last thing you need to deal with is bullies and fitting in. We are anti-bullying, and that’s why we are so in love with this amazing new App – “Sit With Us.”

High-school can be a war zone, and the biggest battle you will ever have to fight is finding a place to sit at the cafeteria. We were all a victim of being bullied at some point or witnessed some hardcore bullying. And, 16-year-old Natalie Hoffman is no stranger to bullying. That’s why the talented high-school student decided to create the App, “Sit With Us.” Natalie didn’t want any other kids to endure what she did, or have to eat alone in the cafeteria every day.

The young teen dished to The Daily News, “I felt like, with my story, it was my job to stand up and do something about all the kids who feel like this every day. And I wanted to create something that would address bullying, but in a positive way.”

According to Seventeen Magazine, the “Sit With Us” App launched on September 2016 and it is totally free to download and easy to use. Seventeen explained, “The way it works is that students can designate themselves as ambassadors who post open lunches, inviting anyone who doesn’t have anywhere else to sit to come sit with them.”

What an awesome idea! We all know that inviting yourself to a lunch table can be awkward and humiliating if you are rejected. This way, someone is secretly inviting you, so you don’t have to be publicly shamed and turned away, and it’s totally on the down low – so the other kids at the table don’t even have to know that you and the “Ambassador” used the App.
