Mental health and Cyber bullying session from YouTube Vlogger Samantha Harvey
by Oliver Rothnie

On Wednesday 20th November a very special visitor came to talk about mental health and digital wellbeing: vlogger and singer Samantha Harvey.

Samantha has over 2 million subscribers on her YouTube channel where she creates and covers songs such as ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran and ‘Havana’ by Camila Cabello, both of which she performed in the talk.

It was a highly interactive talk, in which many people contributed who wouldn’t do normally.

She discussed privacy on the internet, gaming and people’s hobbies.

She also hosted a Q and A session at the end. This all-encompassing 1-hour session was well put together and many students were very excited to see a famous celebrity at their school.

Her final track, "Get to know you", even got some Year 9 pupils dancing!

Thank you very much Samantha!
