MY FOCUS IS TO HELP RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT CYBERBULLYING ON A GLOBAL LEVEL. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE, OF ALL AGES AND BACKGROUNDS, WHO NEED USEFUL INSIGHT AND EFFECTIVE TOOLS FOR DEALING WITH THESE TYPES OF ABUSIVE ONLINE SITUATIONS. MY GOAL IS TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE THAT KINDNESS AND INCLUSION ARE WHAT MAKE THE WORLD A MUCH SAFER SPACE.”
