'I actually switched schools because of it, it created a lot of anxiety and issues that I still deal with today.'

She continues, 'I have dealt with situations both in real life and online that are soul breaking...'

Millie talks the dangers of social media

'It genuinely hurts reading some of the things people have said.'

'Being in this industry we have become so aware of negativity and it’s made me appreciate the love so much more.'

'People receive so much love on social media and then only focus on the hate.'

Millie believes, 'Young people’s lives are increasingly under pressure.'

'First of all, I want to make sure that children are protected from violence and exploitation.'

'Social media is one of the best places in the world and one of the worst – it counteracts itself.'

'It sends such amazing messages; it raises awareness of situations that need to be heard.'

'Nobody should say it isn’t a platform for positivity and change.'

'But then there are some really heartbreaking things to happen on social media and I have dealt with a lot of bullying online.'
