The TEDxTeen Talk features Trisha Prabhu, a 14-year-old student confronting cyber-bullying. 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 cyber-bullying.
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!
