From being in the public eye, Julianne Hough has encountered her fair share of internet bullies and haters. But rather than let it get her down, Hough is using her experiences to build people up, as an ambassador for the Kind Campaign and a partner in its upcoming Kind Camp.

Started by Aaron Paul’s wife Lauren and her friend Molly Thompson, the Kind Campaign aims to end girl-on-girl bullying with the help of a documentary, Finding Kind, and school tours. Hough joined forces with the Kind Campaign team as an ambassador, and now will be a speaker addressing “media and self-esteem issues” at its first ever daylong camp. On Feb. 22, 160 girls from the L.A. area will gather to learn about such issues as relationships and self-care, and to then bring what they’ve learned back to their schools.

Hough’s role will be to “co-lead the breakout session on Media and Self Esteem … to open discussion about the negative effect tabloids and gossip can have on body image and confidence,” according to the Kind Camp website. She’ll be one of several high-profile women leading discussion groups on the tough subjects young girls deal with in school.
