El Paso, TX (KDBC) — Students at a local high school take a stand against bullying on social media.
Hundreds of El Dorado High School students produced an anti-bullying video set to Katy Perry's song "Roar."
It started as a music video for a Perry contest but quickly turned into a chance to promote an anti-bullying campaign at school.
"It was amazing. Like, the experience of doing the video for the whole school, it was amazing," said Jennifer Perez.
"Bullying is not something that anybody should have to go through at El Dorado or anywhere else. And we really wanted to send that message across to other schools," said Sierra Jones.
The video features student groups dancing to the the Katy Perry song in the halls of their school and holding up signs with an anti-bullying message.
"I like how everyone came together as one," said Ashley Camacho.
On Monday, El Dorado uploaded the piece on YouTube and it has since gotten almost 800 views.
"We've have so much comments. We even had come all the way to us from Louisiana so it's just unreal," said Terrie Maya.
Administrators said the best part was that it was a student-driven project.
"It was all the kids. The kids produced it, the kids edited it, the kids recorded it. That's what makes it even more special," said Camacho.
El Dorado High School said students filmed the video in 3 days, and took another 3 days to edit it.
