my article for nbc news asian america

A professional football player is a surprising spokesman for bullying prevention, but Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward is drawing from his own childhood to bolster his advocacy.
“I was a bullied kid,” says Ward, a former member of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, in a White House video. “I used to get talked about and teased all the time. The black kids didn’t want to hang out with me because I was Korean, the Korean kids didn’t want to hang out with me because I was black, and the white kids didn’t want to hang out with me because I was both black and Korean.”
