Who Is Trisha Prabhu?
Trisha Prabhu is the 19-year-old Founder and CEO of ReThink™. Trisha's journey began at 13, when she read the tragic story of a young girl who had died by suicide after being cyber-bullied. As a former victim of online harassment, Trisha knew she had a choice - to be a bystander to the silent pandemic of online hate, or an Upstander. Trisha stood up - and took on the cause to find an effective, proactive solution to online hate. To learn more, visit: www.trishaprabhu.com
ReThink's Game-Changing Solution
• Operating as a keyboard on your mobile device, ReThink™ works across all apps - from text to mail - to detect offensive messages in real-time, and give you a chance to reconsider sending them.

The adolescent brain has been likened to a "car with no brakes" - in other words, young people often act on impulse - and the digital world is no exception. In the heat of the moment, many tweens and teens say hurtful things online - and cause immense mental harm to recipients. Moreover, many teens don't realize that their digital footprint is permanent - once a message is sent, they can't really "delete" it.
The rigorous scientific research behind ReThink™ finds that when faced with the ReThink™ alert, over 93% of the time, teens change their mind, and decide not to post the original offensive message. Indeed, with ReThink™, overall, the willingness to post offensive messages online drops from 71% to 4%. ReThink, then, helps young people think through their digital decisions - and do the right thing.
For our work and impact, ReThink™ has been honored with numerous awards and featured on renowned stages and forums.
