Amber Riley sits down exclusively with Seventeen Magazine and talks about joining Secret Deodorant's Mean Stinks campaign in an effort to stand up to bullying.

17: Have you ever been a victim of girl-to-girl meanness?

Amber Riley: I haven't personally experienced bullying, but when I was in high school, I had a best friend who became a bully. I took a stand and took it upon myself to separate from her. I couldn't be associated with her because it wasn't the type of person I wanted to be. I have always made a point to befriend those sitting alone or being bullied because I believe everyone deserves to have a friend.

17: What part do you play in the campaign?

AR: I'm partnering with Secret's Mean Stinks Program to give girls the strength to break through the meanness and be nice. I want to encourage young women to stand up for each other and speak up when they see others in a tough situation.
