LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- From corporate America to the classroom. An Indiana man is spreading a catchy message with an important meaning.

He wants young people to know they can make a difference and he says it's time to "Mojo Up!”

At Southern High School on Friday morning, March 21, the day started with a little boost from a man with a message.

“I get to bring these students a powerful message,” Travis Brown, known as Mr. Mojo, said.  “What it means to Mojo Up to take a stand against bullying.”

So who is Mr. Mojo?

He is Travis Brown; a man from Lafayette, Ind. who left the corporate consulting world behind to stop bullying in school.

“I think there are some significant challenges our kids face today. One of those problems is the cyber world. When you start dealing with social media and everybody has a microphone, everybody has a voice, everybody has an audience and it doesn't turn off. I think that gives kids big challenges,” Brown said.

His visit to Southern High School was all about learning acceptance and appreciating people for who they are.

Brown likes to think of himself as America's ant-bullying coach.

“You make a difference, you count, you matter, your important and no matter what goes on in your world that never changes your value,” Brown said.
