SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) Shelbi Webb, 13, has decided to go big with her message to help kids overcome their challenges of bullying, self-image, LGBTQ acceptance, and suicide.
With the help of her mom and dad, she is planning a retreat for kids and their guardians to come and reconnect, as well as form a new community of safety with others. The Star-Touched Retreat, presented by Sugar Glider a Comic with a Cause, is planned for September 7th and 8th.
Shelbi started writing comics as a form of therapy when she was dealing with being bullied and the suicide death of a close family friend.
Her comic “Sugar Glider” is about a 16-year-old high school girl. She is a track and field star and adrenaline junkie from a Southern California beach community. A meteor shower effected some of the teens in the community. Jordyn, aka Sugar Glider, was camping in the mountains and fell into a crater where a meteor crashed to earth. When she awoke, she had gained super speed, agility, healing, and enlarged empathy.
