"Girltopia is all about girl power, which is most importantly all about supporting each other, and the sisterhood of the world," Laura Marano said in an interview with Sweety High.

One of the primary focuses of Girltopia was to discuss bullying and why it's so important for girls to come together, be kind, and try to put a stop to bullying. BYOU Magazine facilitated celebrity panels where the stars spoke about their own experiences.

"Unfortunately it feels like bullying has become more prominent these last few years," she said. "That shouldn't happen. We should all be supportive of each other and all love each other and respect each other, gosh darn it!"

She added that girls are more similar than we sometimes think, and that we all go through tough situations that should bring us together instead of tearing us apart.

"Just share those experiences together and realize that we can help each other in different ways," Laura suggested.  "A girl right next to you might not seem like she's going through a lot, but she might be going through the same things that you are."

Laura explained that it is sometimes impossible to know everything that someone is going though, and that's why it's so important to always be kind.

"There might be some emotional things going on that you don't know about, so be supportive," she said. "Always be there for someone."

Girltopia was an exciting event because of the positivity it taught to thousands and thousands of Girl Scouts through interactive activities and chances to meet the stars!

"I think positivity is awesome," Laura said. "I think this event is really cool because it's promoting positivity, promoting girl love and girl support. I'm so happy to be here."
