The TEDxTeen Talk features Trisha Prabhu, a 14-year-old student confronting cyberbullying. In 2013, Trisha heard about young girl’s suicide due to bullying on the Internet and set out to find a long-term solution to cyberbullying.
In this video Trisha explores how our brains function when behaving online and introduces ‘Rethink,’ which gives adolescents who are trying to post an offensive message on social media a second chance to reconsider their decision. Her research reveals surprising results!
