DreamWorks Animation: It Gets Better (VIDEO)

 

DreamWorks Animation staff have recorded an It Gets Better video to help young people who have faced bullying and prejudice realize that life does get better.

In the video staff share their personal stories about the difficult circumstances they had to overcome in their youth, but also how their lives have changed for the better now. They also stress the importance of finding help and a community that can support you.

Watch the video below:
