cyberbullying research center   "I posted a video of myself singing a song on YouTube, and then 5 days later I found a video that an "anonymous" person made that basically took my video, slowed it down, zoomed into my face, and this person made side comments in the video such as "she's so ugly" and "i hate her." It made me scared, because I didn't know who would do such a thing, because it looked like it took a lot of time and effort to make the hate video, so this person must hate me A LOT." (15 year-old girl from CA)

What They're Saying...
"Sameer...Thank you...such a pleasure to meet you and have you participate in the evolution of our youth. As I reflect on the day's events, I am reminded of the words of one of my teachers, Miriam Dior. Her work is guided by the simple principle of "spirit, take me to where I am needed." I believe that your work is about this in the purest sense. I am inspired by your compassion, passion, conviction, and authenticity embodied in your work and being. I appreciate your seeming fearlessness about the subject matter regardless of your audience. Our work (U32's) is to evolve from this day of information and move forward in a meaningful way. I hope that we can continue this journey with the same optimism that you emulate. Our work, in my being, is always for the current and future generations." Ellen Cooke, School Counselor, U32 Schools, Montpelier, VT
