Ugly, fake, stupid, phony, freak...these were just some of the words I was subjected to when I was cyberbullied. They swept me up in an emotional tornado that repeatedly knocked the wind out of me. And even worse, I had done absolutely nothing to stir up this storm.
Bessemer Academy faces many of the same challenges as other schools in Pueblo, Colorado, a town of 110,000 people that has struggled to reinvent itself in the face of deindustrialization and enormous job losses. Nearly 90% of students in Pueblo City Schools qualify for free or reduced lunch.
I’m inspired by the youth from Parkland, Florida. They are piercing the numbness so many have succumbed to when faced with news of yet another school shooting. They’re engaging in dialogue with youth from America’s inner cities and making the important connection between school shootings at affluent suburban schools and the gun violence that robs the lives of thousands of youth in our country’s forgotten neighborhoods.
Cybercrime is becoming a huge problem. The World Wide Web is a vast and expansive place and, unfortunately, it is home to cybercriminals. These individuals and organisations use the online world to perform illegal activities such as stealing bank account details, disrupting computer systems, and obtaining private information. Cybercrimes exploit system weaknesses and also our general lack of awareness of correct online security procedures. Malware, phishing, viruses and denial of service attacks are all types of cyberattacks that can be hugely damaging.
