Hendricks now uses his musical talent and experience with bullying as an opportunity to provide inspiration for others facing similar situations by reaching out to North Carolina schools to deliver the "Breaking Down Barriers" program.
"It is an honor to be given the opportunity to use my own experience and love of music to inspire these students," said Hendricks. "Unfortunately, bullying is fairly common in our schools, but with this program, I am able to discuss the importance of standing up to bullying in an effort to make a difference."
