I am passionate about cybersecurity, and I believe computers can help create our dreams-- or destroy them.
Our world has become increasingly dependent on technology; some experts predict that by 2020 there will be 200 billion connected things. Cars, planes, homes, cities, and even our pets are being connected. Technology is almost like our second family member, and I want to help protect it.
Through this initiative, you’ll find ways to protect yourself online. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask, whether about cybersecurity or the future of technology.
The Pennigton School Co-founder & Ambassador
I am proud to be a Co-Founder of this non-profit organization that was created to spread knowledge among teenagers about safe online practices and cybersecurity behaviors. Through our peer to peer program we advocate and engage in the privacy and safety of students. The organization believes that community involvement is the most effective way for online awareness mission. We have developed partnerships with various school districts like Pennsbury School District to provide cyber security training to high school students to develop interest in technology and enhance career prospects. I want to protect young teens by being part of this movement for online safety and security. We are all online so often that sometimes we forget that there may be danger in our smart phones and laptops. Empowering our generation through safe online practices is our motto!

Princeton Day School, Princeton, NJ
My name is Natasha, and I am a sophomore at Princeton Day School (class of 2021). I enjoy learning about the scientific world and seeing how it interacts with our beliefs as people, so I am very interested in the field of bioethics. In my free time, I love to play the piano and have been performing in concerts for about nine years. During the school year, I am an active member of my school’s varsity fencing and varsity figure skating teams. I am a part of Safe Teens Online because I believe that the internet is prevalent in so many aspects of our lives, so it’s important to follow the right practices to stay safe online. Teenagers, such as myself, might underestimate the importance of safe online practices, but the repercussions of not doing so can be dangerous. For this reason, it is my goal to educate as many of my peers as possible about proper internet protocol.

West-Windsor Plainsboro High School South, NJ
My name is Adrian and I am junior at I’m a junior at West-Windsor Plainsboro High School South, and my hobbies include music and building stuff.
The reason I wanted to become an Ambassador to SafeTeensOnline was because safety on the internet is more important than ever before. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), net neutrality and internet theft can be extremely confusing to an adolescent getting on the internet for the first time. I think that this is where SafeTeens can help – and where I can help - by giving important information about these topics.

Cairo School , Egypt
I’m originally from Cairo, Egypt and I love to fence and hope to Fence in college. But most of all I love how neuroscience can fit with my religion Islam. I am researching more about how my belief links to the brain and every time I do I find more stuff, such as how faith and religious thoughts affect the brain and how does it affect it for the better.
I want to study in college aspects of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI). This FMRI maps the brain and shows you which part of the brain is used for what. From my perspective, I don’t see any barriers between Islam and Neurology. They both can help us and hopefully will help me to a career in medicine or research (that’s my goal).

Princeton High School, NJ
I’m Simon Li, the graduating class of 2021 at Princeton High School in New Jersey. I’ve spent many hours, and hours, and hours, and even more hours practicing the piano. But I love music, so it’s not work. I’m also trying to understand how computer science can help environmental issues like the dead spots that are growing in the ocean. They just found another the size of Florida! I want to make these dead zones alive again. Computer science may hold the key to saving the planet; by programming a protocell that could add oxygen to the ocean. For online safety, I have my own experience of that. In China, there’s a very similar app to Facebook called Wechat. One neat function of Wechat is Wechat Pay, which allows people to send money online. But this wasn't so cool for me, and my experience was terrible, so I want to raise everyone’s awareness of online safety, so you won’t have to experience what I did.
Kent Place High School, NJ
I am senior at Kent Place High school NJ.

As a teenager myself, I am eager to collaborate with other students to come up with ways to stay safe online.

Pennsbury High School, PA
My name is Lexi and I am 9th grader at Pennsbury high school. I believe in keeping the internet safe for teens and young adults. Kids today aren't educated enough of all the dangers that are on line and they may think they know what danger is out there but they aren't as informed as they should be. Too many things can happen on line with the growing technology and social media but they all think it could never happen to them. There needs to be a greater awareness presented in a way that they can relate to. I want to help others be able to help themselves.
