Be an UpStander, not a ByStander

How did it all start?

It started when Trisha decided to be engaged UpStander, and not a silent ByStander

In the fall of 2013, Trisha, then 13 years old, read a news story about the suicide of an 12 year old girl from Florida who had been repeatedly cyber-bullied by her classmates. She was shocked, heartbroken, and outraged. She wondered - how could a girl younger than herself be pushed to take her own life? She knew, something had to change. Deeply moved by the silent pandemic of cyberbullying and passionate to stop it in adolescents, Trisha created the patented technology product ReThink™, that detects and stops cyberbullying at the source, before the bullying occurs, before the damage is done.

Trisha has met with families who have lost children to bullying and cyberbullying. She served on the board of the Tyler Clementi Foundation, an organization founded by the parents of Tyler Clementi, who took his own life after being cyberbullied for his identity. To ensure that the memories of these victims live on, Trisha continues to speak at various global platforms, universities, schools and communities to raise cyberbullying awareness, to stop online hate, and to engage adolescents to spread positivity and tolerance online. ReThink™ is a result of Trisha’s ground-breaking research and technology development aimed at training adolescent's brains to make positive decisions on social media.
