Global advocate for anti-cyber bullying.
Passionately rising up against baseless, internet shame & humiliation.
Cyberbullying is a growing problem in today’s digital world. After building several, highly successful businesses online, I know how powerful the internet can be. However, this power is not limited to success only. Words online don’t go away and unfortunately some words can be used to shame and destroy the lives of innocent people.
In 2015, I was the target of one of the worst cyberbullying cases to date. I’m speaking out and turning my experience into hope for others like myself.

The distructive fallout of online slander.
Our online, digital profiles can be easily destroyed with only a few words or pictures and it’s not limited to kids. Like me, I’ve met other adult men and women who’ve lost their entire careers, money, homes and sadly, even family relationships. The mental health damages are far reaching as well, and in some cases the deep shame has ultimately lead to suicide. We often don’t think of the lasting, destructive effects, online words carry.

However, there is also a very dangerous side to social media. It’s become a very different place than where it was ten years ago. There are millions more users and not a lot of rules so it can feel like a bit of a playground. It’s easy to be faceless and anonymous which can unfortunately bring out the worst in people.” – Zoe Sugg

We all Owe Monica Lewinsky an Apology.
– By Molly Jong-Fast
It was one of the worst betrayals in modern life, 22 hours of taped conversation, 22 hours of confession, 22 hours of betrayal. In an article written the following year, The Washington Post called it “a sighing, giggling, sobbing soundscape of the American night, and a breathtaking study in betrayal.” And it was.
She became everyone’s punching bag. The New York Post called her “the portly pepper pot.” Late-night hosts were obsessed with her; she was a recurring character on Saturday Night Live. Making fun of this 22-year-old girl became a national pastime. She was bullied for everything from her hat choice to her weight to her voice to her diction. …Read More
