Benni Cinkle, Awkward Backup Dancer in 'Friday' Video, Wants To Make School Appearances

What do you do when you're a part of a video that's gotten 176 million views? 
 
Milk it for all it's worth.

Benni Cinkle, the brace-faced girl who flails her arms awkwardly in Rebecca Black's "Friday" video, debuted a video of her own last week called "Can You See Me Now." Now, according to a press release (yes, she even has a press team), the Anaheim Hills teen has gotten "overwhelming requests and responses," so she has decided to host a Bring Benni to School Contest. Kids can enter by creating a video telling a story about a difficult time in their lives and how they got through it. Cinkle will pick five winners and visit their schools to talk about empowerment.
 
Says the press release: "It is no surprise that Benni has touched the lives of so many children and teens all around the world due to her admirable self-confidence and determination to not let other people bring her down."
 
Is that what kids really need more of these days? Self-confidence? Isn't that what leads to things like the Rebecca Black video in the first place? 

Check out the painful-to-watch video here:

Maybe YOU need a little self confidence, since you want to call out young teenagers who are trying to help people out. You obviously don't feel too good about yourself. Which, I don't see why you would since you're a bitch lol.

I agree with the other commenters here. Lighten up Michelle!  At least this girl is doing something productive with her time. Why are you so angry at Benni? Maybe you need her to come help you, too?

Ms. Woo, are you seriously attacking a teenager for doing something GOOD to help other teens? OMG, really? Now I think I've truly seen it all.

"Is that what kids really need more of these days? Self-confidence?"

Ummm, yes. That's exactly what teens need more of these days, and I for one am really glad that Benni Cinkle is doing what she's doing to help other kids.

Michelle,What is so painful to watch in this video? It's actually pretty cute, funny and clever. It inspires creativity and I really don't see why you feel the need to attack an innocent and LOCAL teenage girl who is trying to inspire good in others.

Have you been on www.sixbillionsecrets.com? Yes, I would say some kids need more confidence! Benni is using her fame from Friday to do and do some good. Shame on you writing such a mean-spirited article about a young lady who is trying to help these kids!

misery loves company is my guess and doubtful she is parent...she can't even articulate a sentence.
