The teen says the outpouring of support caught her off guard.
"I thought before, 'Oh, no one cares about me,''' she said. "I thought not even my own brother and sister care. But they're proving me they do care. The world is proving they do, well not really care about me, but they care about the situation. So I'm happy. I'm really honored."
In fact, her sister, Alivia Kropp, was the first person to spread the word and encourage her to speak out.
"I told her ... you've got the courage, you've got the strength to go do it, so go do it and have fun," she said.
She said the night her sister spent crying was horrible.
"It's very hard to see someone hurt and upset, and you want to do everything in your power to make sure they're not that way," Alivia Kropp said.
