YMCA Changemaker: Trisha Prabhu TED Talk on Stopping Cyberbullying
Throughout the Institute, we'll be introducing you to youth changemakers from around our YMCA movement. One such changemaker is Trisha Prabhu, who served as the 2017 YMCA Youth Governor of the Illinois YMCA Youth and Government program.

She gave a TED Talk titled "Stopping Cyberbullying Before the Damage is Done," which confronts what she feels are some of the problems with how we address the issue:
