Ally Pereira Scheduled to Speak to OESJ Middle and High School Students

Ally Pereira was 16 when a naked picture of herself was forwarded to her entire school by an ex-boyfriend. After seeing how sexting was changing other teenagers' lives she chose to speak out and help other teens from making the same mistake she had. She has been featured on MTV: Sexting in America, The View, HLN, Good Morning America, Fox News, Lifetime TV, MTV: Disconnected Aftershow, and Dr. Drew. She also travels nationwide to middle and high schools speaking to kids about the dangers of sexting and the repercussions of bullying. She has also worked with MTV's A Thin Line's as a member of their Street Team and has traveled to The White House to meet with President Obama's Senior Adviser.

Ally will be visiting our district on January 30, 2015, to talk to our high school and middle school students about sexting and the effects it has on students and the entire school community.   Along will Ms.Pereira, there will be a New York State trooper included in the discussions.

Principal David Slater commented that “We can talk to our students on a regular basis about these topics but to have a first-hand discussion will be invaluable.”
