ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

This summer WONKA is calling on nerds everywhere to unite and celebrate their uniqueness and stand up against bullying.

CBS Atlanta's Jennifer Banks spoke with the movement leader, Wilmer Valderramma.

Valderramma said the "NERDS Unite!" campaign is to remind the world we are all nerds at heart.

STOMP Out Bullying is proud to partner with WONKA NERDS in putting the spotlight on anti-bullying in a truly creative campaign that embraces individuality.

WONKA is asking teenagers to join the "NERDS Unite!" movement by logging onto Facebook.com/Wonka to share what they are "a NERD for," and watch the movement grow.

Valderramma spoke about his struggles as a teenager and being picked on about his accent.

He also speaks about why it's important to be unique instead of acting and dressing like everyone else.
