Recently I had the honor of speaking alongside First Lady Melania Trump, federal colleagues, academics and researchers, private firms and students at the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Summit on Cyberbullying hosted at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The First Lady opened the event and shared her passion and focus on protecting children, especially through online platforms. She highlighted the efforts of her “Be Best” Campaign, which focuses on major issues facing children today, including social media. Her presence signaled to our federal colleagues and private sector attendees that she was personally committed to protecting children and youth online. After her remarks she remained at the event to learn more about this issue and how she can continue to make a difference.
