This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Have you ever done or said something and wished you could take it back? Cyber bullying is a bigger problem than you think. There is a solution. ReThink about it...

Trisha Prabhu is a 14-year-old student at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville, Illinois. From a young age, she has been fascinated with the inner workings of the brain. 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.



Her research led her to create the product Rethink, which won her a spot as a Google Science Fair 2014 Global Finalist. Rethink gives adolescents who are trying to post an offensive message on social media a second chance to reconsider their decision. Her product idea also won first prize at the PowerPitch Competition at 1871, Chicago’s technology and entrepreneurial hub. Rethink has been covered on Business Insider, International Business Times, Huffington Post and several other media outlets. She currently holds a Provisional Patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for Rethink.



Prior to her Rethink project, Trisha researched the brain’s role in the cognitive distraction that causes distracted driving. She won a Gold Medal Award from the Illinois Junior Academy of Science for her work. She is an advocate of STEM in education and believes that technology is the future of tomorrow. She has spoken at education and technology conferences in the Chicago area.



Aside from her love of science and technology, Trisha is a published author of four books. She was also named Chicago’s Financial Literacy Ambassador by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
