#Kleanse Spotlight: 15-Year-Old Trisha Prabhu Develops An App That Looks To End Cyberbullying!

Filed under: InspirationTech TalkBullyingViral: KidsGirl Power

Trisha Prabhu is tackling cyberbullying head on!

It's hard to remember what exactly we we're doing when we were just 15 years old, but we're willing to wager it wasn't nearly as inspirational as this!!

With everyone connecting via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, cyberbullying is a pretty huge issue these days — ESPECIALLY in high schools!

But Trisha Prabhu is doing everything she can to make the Internet a friendlier place with a little app she developed called ReThink!

By connecting to all of your social media apps on your mobile device, ReThink is able to keep track of any outgoing messages or possible posts and asks users to reconsider sending anything out if it detects harmful or offensive language!

As a high schooler, this issue clearly hit close to home for Trisha. But she says she was really inspired when she heard the story of a teen who took her own life after being the victim of cyberbullying:

"How can a girl younger than myself be pushed to take her own life? I was shocked, heartbroken and angry to learn about this incident and set out to find a long-term solution to cyberbullying. I knew I had to do something to stop this from ever happening again."

While not all victims claim their own lives, the numbers are pretty staggering when it comes to teens dealing with depression and anxiety due to cyberbullying.

Trisha goes on to say:

"Research shows that over 50% of adolescents online are cyberbullied, 38% suffer from suicidal tendencies. Victims suffer from depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem, and are afraid to go to school the following day."

The app is currently available on the Google Play store and should be available to Apple devices soon, but the early reviews are already great!

In fact, Trisha says ReThink users have reconsidered sending harmful messages about 93% of the time!

The 15-year-old has already won a handful of awards for her innovative app and she's rubbed shoulders with some pretty interesting people (above), and we have a feeling this wont be the last we hear from her!

Oh no, this is so sad.

The death of Victoria Siegel hit her family hard, but the developing news of what possibly caused her to pass away must be harder.

The Queen of Versailles brood believe cyberbullying from her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend pushed her over the edge and made her turn to prescription meds, which caused her to OD.

While the Siegel family says the mean messages were coming in via her boyfriend's phone, sources close to the family say it was happening on social media as well.

Victoria's mom, Jacqueline made a statement through the family spokesperson on her Facebook page and wrote:

"The ex-girlfriend of Victoria's boyfriend used his phone to send cruel and hateful text messages using the boyfriend's phone. These messages were sent early on the morning of Victoria's death. These messages were clearly intended to hurt Victoria and while we cannot be sure may have affected her emotional state at a time when she was emotionally vulnerable."

Insiders close to the family are saying they don't believe the 18-year-old wanted to kill herself.

The family planned on taking a cruise this week, and Victoria went to get her passport just in time for the trip.

As a result of that action, Victoria's family believes she accidentally overdosed on pills when she was reportedly being bullied.


Although this suspicion has surfaced, the Orange County Sheriff's office revealed the girl in question is not a part of their investigation.
