Hi! My name is Karen Salshutz and I am a 21-year-old junior at the University of Maryland. My major is Communication and I am on the Public Relations track. I am born and raised in Westchester, NY, a suburb outside of New York City. Some of my interests include: cooking, yoga, and binge-watching TV shows years after they were actually popular.
Cyberbullying is an issue that I am passionate about. Growing up in the digital age, I have had the opportunity to see social media and digital media flourish, but have also seen the downsides of technology. Throughout middle school and high school many of my friends and I have been a victim of cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is a national and global issue that I believe can be solved with proper education programs about digital media. It is imperative that actions are taken against cyberbullies in order to establish a safer digital community.
