Good magazine told the story of Trisha Prabhu, a 14-year-old Illinois high school student, who heard about a young girl's suicide due to bullying on the Internet and set out to find a long-term solution to cyber-bullying. Her research led her to create the product Rethink, which won her a spot as a Google Science Fair 2014 Global Finalist.
"Rethink gives adolescents who are trying to post an offensive message on social media a second chance to reconsider their decision... The program recognizes when users enter phrases often used to cyberbully into a computer—and displays a pop-up window asking the writer to reconsider. The Chicago high school student's own studies find that a simple prompt ('Are you sure you want to send that message?') is enough to discourage its teen users from sending nasty missives a whopping 93 percent of the time."
