Hey beautiful people. If you remember (which you probably don't but that's totally okay) this month's theme is CONNECT. Connecting with an emphasis on the online world, because to teenagers that's basically all their is to life.

I love the online world as much as the next person, but I think we've all seen the dark side of the internet: online bullying. I'm not going to be all self righteous or preachy because that's not really my thing, but I encourage you to watch this Tedx talk on bullying and how one Teentrepreneur is changing the bullying game. This is Trisha Prabhu:

She has created ReThink, a software that works against cyberbullying. This was taken from the ReThink website:

"ReThink is a non-intrusive, innovative, patented software product  that effectively stops cyberbullying before the damage is done.
The world is currently in the midst of a technology revolution. There are 1.8 billion teens around the globe, and technology is increasingly at the hands of every adolescent. With more adolescents being online, more are getting cyberbullied. Cyberbullied victims suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and more likely to drop out of school. Several solutions that are in place today address bullying after the damage is done. ReThink is the first ever solution to proactively prevent cyberbullying before the damage is done.
ReThink is conquering this silent pandemic one message at a time."
