Amanda Todd tribute video released for one-year anniversary of her death
The story of Amanda Todd's struggles with cyberbullying and depression after her online activities has been recreated in a tribute video.
Released on the eve of the one-year anniversary of her death, the video recounts Todd's story along with a song called Believe by Maple Ridge singer Beatrice Sallis.
Brent Hampton, a Port Coquitlam dad studying and working in the recording arts industry, was a consultant on the project and is helping to publicize the video. He said the images may be difficult to watch but ultimately the message is positive because it encourages people to believe in themselves.
"The whole purpose of the video, and I think the purpose in the end, is to show people that they don't have to succumb to people's suggestions of what they think of you."
