Charles Teitgen

In this episode, Karen speaks with Claire Tietgen and her father Charles. Claire is 18 and the survivor of bullying as well as several suicide attempts. Claire is on a mission to share her story to normalize the conversation about bullying, depression and suicide.

Claire Tietgen is an anti-bullying advocate; she was born and raised in Kansas and had been bullied throughout her childhood. Instead of letting it keep her down, she decided to do something about it. At age 13, Claire started her own Youtube channel (Bullied But Not Broken) and then her family, including her dad Charles, founded a non-profit organization (E3 Scholarship Fund) to help children overcome bullying.
