cyberbullying research center   "Recently, I was very much hurt by cyberbullying. This guy I know, let's call him Tom, started to IM me. He said that his friend was over, let's call him Joe. And then, randomly, Joe starts insulting me. He calls me a loser and that I look like a potato. He curses and I feel like crying. The hurt was so real that I felt like throwing up. I hate IMing people now because I am scared of this kind of hurt." (12 year-old girl from NY)

What They're Saying...
"When it comes to the subject of cyberbullying, Sameer is a "rock star." He not only knows this subject inside out, but is able to share his knowledge and relate to his audiences on an amazingly human level. Our high school peer trainers not only walked away with the tools to address and counter cyberbullying…….they walked away feeling as if they had made a friend. A good one! We are already planning on bringing Sameer back to Arizona." Bill Straus, Arizona Regional Director, ADL
