In her talk, Trisha Prabhu makes us think of the adverse effects of cyber bullying and how to prevent it.
For as long as she can remember, Trisha Prabhu has been fascinated with the inner workings of the brain. In the fall of 2013, after hearing about a young girl’s suicide because of cyberbullying, she set out to design a long-term effective solution to stop cyberbullying.r
Her efforts resulted in ReThink, a product that gives adolescents trying to post offensive messages on social media a second chance to reconsider their decisions. Winning a spot as a Global Finalist at Google Science Fair 2014 and winner of PowerPitch 1871, Chicago’s technology and entrepreneurial hub, Trisha and Rethink has been covered by Business Insider, The International Business Times, The Huffington Post, and several other US and International media outlets. Trisha currently holds a provisional patent with the US Patent and Trademark Office for her ReThink product.r
Trisha is a 14 year-old high school freshman at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville, IL, United States.
