Soundportrait – Arisa Joan Page

13 years old and already Arisa Joan Page, or AJ as she likes to be called, is standing up for herself and others to help right a wrong-doing. In this case, taking on bullies and letting them know that it’s not acceptable behaviour towards another human being.

On meeting AJ, my first impression is that she is a gentle, sweet girl. It’s hard for me to imagine that anyone would want to bully her. But sure enough, she has had to deal with being bullied. She’s chosen to take a stand.

Listen to the lyrics of her new single and you’ll know that she’s “Not gonna back down” anymore.

I urge you to take a look at her website and blog and see the good work she is doing on behalf of anti-bullying. The single is out on Monday, 15 December and will be available on iTunes and Amazon.
