Spurred to action by the death of a 12-year old girl that committed suicide because she was repeatedly cyber-bullied, Trisha took on the cause to invent a proactive solution, ReThink – to stop this silent pandemic.
ReThink is a proactive and patented technology solution that detects and stops online hate before it occurs. ReThink is also a student lead movement that calls on their peers to think before you post. ReThink has been recognized and honored by The White House, Google, MIT, and WebMD, and featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, TED, TEDx, and at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit at Stanford University. ReThink has now been introduced to over 5 million students around the world, and over 1400 schools worldwide have pledged to adopt the ReThink message as a solution to stop online hate. Trisha is now working tirelessly to create and rollout ReThink in international languages to schools and communities around the world at no cost to them.
In addition to her work with ReThink, Trisha was elected as first female YMCA Youth and Government Youth Governor of Illinois in 28 years. Over the last 3 years, as a Girls Who Code club leader, Trisha has been volunteer-teaching young women aged 8-18 to code at their local public library. In the fall of 2018, Trisha will be pursuing an undergraduate degree at Harvard University.
She is also a Board member of the Tyler Clementi Foundation.
