A Canfield girl is using a dark time in her life to raise awareness about a serious issue.

Alise Rafoth, 16, said she was bullied for a year.

She got help and to keep her mind off of it came up with the idea to launch a boutique inside Adamas Jewelry and Gift, her grandmother’s store.

Her two sisters joined in and together they launched A’s attic.

The trio wants people to know how many people are effected by bullying.

“You forget who you are and what means the most to you, and for me, I couldn’t really think for myself,” said Rafoth.

Rafoth plans on donating a portion of the proceeds to a bullying foundation. She’s still researching who she will give the money to.
