"I started an Instagram campaign called I Am More Than,' Kylie said. "I've been bullied my whole life, whether it was by my peers or comments on Instagram, or Twitter, whatever, and I never talked about my story really. 

"I feel like I've kind of accepted it 'cause I realize that that just comes with the territory, so I kinda was online and just finding other girls and boys my age who have been bullied, and have kind of overcome it and just done something amazing with it, who inspire me. 

"So I kind of wanted them to just use my platform and post their stories on Instagram to hopefully inspire my followers too, because they inspire me so much."

Kylie has spoken candidly about her own experiences dealing with bullies, but in a recent video posted on her website,  she admitted that the hate made her 'stronger.'

"Being bullied for so long at such a young age - it just made me so strong and I feel like I shouldn't be this strong at 18 but it just made me stronger," she said, adding, "Now I feel like anyone can say anything about me and its not gonna hurt me."
