Cleveland, Ohio high school student Gabrielle Jones refuses to be a victim.

She has become a victor instead by writing an award winning essay on bullying and her experience in dealing with it.

The empowered young superstar wrote the essay as part of the Maltz Museum “Stop the Hate” essay contest and she is $50,000 richer because of it.

Gabrielle’s win doesn’t come in cold, hard cash. Instead, she has received a scholarship from the organization.
