In 2014, 13 years old girl Trisha Prabhu then, developed an anti-school bullying revolutionary system. In fact, 'Rethink' app's main purpose is to detect rude and offensive languages that may be contained in messages teenagers send on the social network.
'ReThink is a non-intrusive, innovative, patented software product that effectively stops cyberbullying before the damage is done', as described on Rethink.com.
The software scans messages or posts for offensive content and prompts a warning.
One warning reads: ‘Is this message worthy of you?’
Trisha ran 1,500 trials and found that when youngsters received a ReThink prompt they changed their minds 93 per cent of the time.
In 2014 she was one of the Google Science Fair finalist and from then on she received numerous awards and introduced her project to the White House as well as in several universities and during the very famous TED conference.
