Todd Schobel heard about the tragic suicide of a young girl who committed suicide after being bullied and decided that he was going to do something about it. He created STOPit, an app to help kids protect themselves from bullying, especially cyber bullying. Todd explains, "There are countless online platforms that give children the opportunity to hide behind their smart phones and computers to victimize others." "My goal is to empower children with an outlet in which they feel safe to stop it. Children will go so far as to take their own lives when dealing with the emotional consequences of cyberbullying and I want to put an end to it," he concludes.
