SLIM, SAMANTHA, MZ. NIK AND ONDAISHA AT THE EVENT. Mz. Nik, the executive chair of the Youth for the Beltzhoover Neighborhood Council, told the New Pittsburgh Courier that “some of my girls in my group were being bullied and picked on in school, and one likes to fight a lot. They wanted to speak out against bullying but they didn’t know how. So, I prayed and asked God what he would have me to do, and this is what he put in my spirit.”
