For anyone who thinks that all 12 year-old girls do is undergo pubescent fits, sing lyrics to Ariana Grande and crush on teenage boys, one will be gravely mistaken when it comes to Sophia Carroll. Twelve year-old Sophia has always been one that stands up to bullying, especially when it comes to her peers. Impacted both by adolescent bullying and the killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Sophia designed her own T-shirt, showcasing the logo ‘COLORBLIND,’ promoting unity amongst not just races, but unity amongst all people. The theme gained national popularity and Sophia’s COLORBLIND T-shirts have been shipped to California, Las Vegas, Arizona and Illinois. What’s more is that Sophia donates 50% of the T-shirt monies to the Megan Meier Foundation, in memory of Megan Meier, a young teenage who committed suicide after enduring cyber bullying.
