Miss NY mentioned Tivoli overcoming horrible bullying & abuse using her talent as a singer/songwriter to work along with & for different agencies,collecting signatures for Jamey Rodemyer Bill to help aid in suicide prevention /awareness. The Bill was written by Miss NY (Kaitin Monte) and was just put into effect! Tivoli understands that bullying leads to such losw self esteem no matter if it is name calling, leaving you out, or outright beatings. Tivoli Skye has endured them all and turned around and wrote a moving energetic song "I Don't Care" and "Smile" which is yet to be produced among other originals written earlier in her albums ages 13, 14, and 15, with songs like Change,Because, Hold on, The Unloved , Story of our Lives about the Holocaust and much more.
