Kevin Curwick
Teen Ambassador STOMP Out Bullying™

Kevin_Curwick_web.jpgKevin Curwick is a sophmore at the College of St. Benedict at St. John's University and attended Osseo Senior High School in Osseo, Minnesota – a small suburb of Minneapolis.  Kevin has never actually been the victim of bullying, but during the summer of 2012 he discovered that some of his friends and classmates were being targeted by cyber-bullying via anonymous Twitter accounts established for the sole purpose of destroying their self-esteem.  Not wanting this kind of behavior to spoil the good reputation of his high school, Kevin decided to counter the nastiness and vulgarities of these accounts by establishing his own anonymous Twitter account.  Kevin’s Twitter account, @OsseoNiceThings would be used to broadcast nice, uplifting messages about those being bullied as well as others at Osseo Senior High.  Within a few weeks of his nice tweets and growing list of followers, the bullying accounts disappeared and he began to hear others speaking fondly of his messages as football practice started up for the new season ahead.  A local Twin Cities television station, KARE 11, discovered the Twitter account as they were investigating the emergence of several anonymous bullying accounts cropping up in high schools across the region.  The KARE 11 reporter, Lindsey Seavert,  convinced Kevin to come forward as the person behind the nice Twitter account by revealing that his efforts were already paying off as a few other accounts inspired by @OsseoNiceThings had begun to spring up around the Twin Cities.  The news story ran on the KARE 11 local news and was picked up by USA Today, Huffington Post and several other local TV stations around the country.  Soon the story went viral on the Internet and Kevin was interviewed by several print media and radio stations including an interview with Ryan Seacrest and a follow-up story by KARE 11.  @OsseoNiceThings now has over 4,700 followers and Kevin asks everyone in the school to direct message him with nice things they would like him to tweet about other classmates.


Kevin was captain on the football team and the Nordic ski team, president of the National Honor Society at Osseo Senior High, a Junior Rotarian, a member of the Northwest Suburban Athletic Conference Leadership Team, AP Scholar, Senior Leadership Team and elected Homecoming King.  Kevin feels strongly that those recognized as leaders in a school must stand with the victims of bullying to help build them up and allow everyone to make the most of their school experience.  This will not only raise the spirits of the entire school, but will let the bullies know that they are standing alone. Kevin is proud to represent STOMP Out Bullying™ as a Teen Ambassador.
