    You know what I do to Stand Grand? Just be myself. That’s all it takes. You see…I’m what people call: “Crazy but in a good way” if you know what I mean. I’m always the one trying to make peace in the group and making everyone laugh. Vinny’s helped me because A LOT more aware of bullying. Today I saw a kid sitting alone at lunch and guess what me and my BFF did, we went and sat right next to him, and turns out he’s a pretty good dude, I was smiling around school all day. It made me feel so good inside to make someone feel welcome!!! :D D

    Everyday I try my best to “Stand Grand” If something gets in my way I look past it to see what a positive affect it could have on me. Vinny has Tought all of us “GRANDerz” to stay grand. Never give up on something that you`ve dreamed of doing. If i see someone down in my school or someone being bullied. Of coarse I say something Im not just going to stand there and be a bystander. Unlike them, i do something about it. Vinny is my role model I look up to him. I ve wanted to join dance all my life and Im going to. just because Its my dream to perform.
    All I need to say is Thank you, Vinny(:

    To stand GRAND is to ignore the mean people. Show them how to be nicer, it’s to stand up for what you believe in and not be afraid of people. It’s to be yourself and not be afraid of what anyone thinks of it. It’s to have fun, and show those bullies who is boss<3 I love you Vinny!

    Hi bianca, i know its december so octobers granderz corner topic is off but i really wanted to share my story so here it goes:
    so this year wasnt starting out as planned, you see, i started middle school. in elementary i hung out with everyone i was outgoing loved to do music, dance, art everything! then middle school, i entered the first day with no one i knew becuz all my other friends went to a different school…literally no one. so then the next week..all those people i befriended in the first week…i realized they had other friends…for 6 weeks i would sit on a bench under a tree by the front of the school just watching people enjoy themselves…i remembered what vinny had always said…stand grand…i had remembered, and remembering brought me back to my feet, i met someone during pe who is now my best friend, and its all becuz of vinny…thats how i continued to stand grand during the new school year :) Thank U!! <3 ~Granderz4Thebest / Katte Giron<3

    I Stand GRAND everyday when im being Bullied or when I see someone being bullied I just now wrote on my binder “Starve a Bully from their power feed a soul with Confidence and Stand GRAND” I always tell my sister when she bullies me that saying and she just puts me down. I wrote OFFICIAL GRANDer on some paper and then put it on my door and she told me im obsessed i tell her im not im just inspired and im a true GRANDer / ICONiac. But i try to STAND GRAND every single day of my life. And 8th grade isnt going as well as i thought because i go to a school were there are a lot of rich kids and bullies and im always being bullied i dont really even have friends i just sit at the wall ball court watching people run around doing whatever and i come home or run to the library crying after school because of bullies but i remember to Stand GRAND even if i have to fake a smile im still always going to be GRAND. You inspired me a lot THANKS :)

    Vinny,Bianca, and Alessandra have inspired me to be GRAND, and stand up to bullying. I have been bullied before and it was horrible. it was to the point where i didn’t want to go to school. and to top it all off, it was my “friends” who started it. they spread horrible rumors about me, then it just got worst from there. more people bullied me, till one day, my old firend stood up for me. to this day im grateful of him sticking up for me. if it wasn’t for him, i will still be bullied. and all of this happened in 6th grade, now i’m in 9th, standing GRANd to bullying! so far i hadn’t met any Granderz here in Texas, but i will someday, hopefully!

    ~if your not werid, your not GRAND!-Vinny~

    p.s.: i’m probably the only GRANDer here in my town :’(

    Vinny inspired me soo much to dance, Follow me dreams, and to STAND UP to bullying. I`ve been bullied through most of elementary by the older kids but i didnt wanna tell anybody. And now if i see someone beeing bullied i STAND UP for them and dont just stand there and watch i speak up. I just had a day in school called unity day and it was a day we learned about bullying and it was for the whole day and me and my class mates really got closer because we shared our stories of when we got bullied but it was a really emotional day though . Now my school is working even harder to be a bully free school. Hopefully theres no more bullying though .And i hope everyone can help and make there school a bully free school <3

    so this months challenge is to tell what ive done to continue being grand. since its “National no bullying month” i decided to team up with my school friedns
    to make a assembelly on how important bullying is, and why we shouldnt do it. We are also doing a fundraiser so we can buy merchandise from u guys, with ur “STAND GRAND” shirts
    and also costomizing our own shirts saying “NO BULLYING” and “STARVE A BULLY, FEED A SOUL -VINNY CASTRONOVO”. You guys are really the insperation on our idea, and
    so far, this year our counsler told us no child has made a complain about being bullied or seeing bullying! We even made a slideshow on bullying. We are planning to have a
    huge party at the end of the year if we accomplish having a no bullying school year. So thankx so much for bringing my attention on how much bullying actaully meens! im probrbaly
    gonna email you the video of our presentation :) byeee <3

    I Stand Grand. My best friend in the whole world, is bullied. by everyone! I stand up for her. we even sometimes have school things were we forward texts and tell everyone to like wear a purple shirt to stand against bullying. I’ve been bullied multiple times, so I can’t bear see my best friend be bullied like I was. Right now, we’re both doing our best to Stand Grand, and end bullying in our community. That is how I stand Grand.
