Cole added that she wanted to highlight the issue of cyber bullying after working with youths via the Cheryl Cole Foundation. She added:
"I get what these kids have gone through because I had a tough upbringing and I understand what it feels like to get bullied like some of them. I want to help these young people because I know how it feels to come out on the other side and be someone who achieves."
