This is a statement that cofounder of PROJECT ROCKIT, Rosie Thomas, stands by after witnessing acts of bullying during school. Since then, Rosie and her sister Lucy have been making a stance against bullying by delivering evidence-based programs about the negative impact persecution can have on young people. As a result of their national programs, they’ve helped thousands of young students create a kinder world.
Years later, they are still impacting school communities around the country with UNICEF recognising their work, as well as the pair being awarded Order of Australia medals. Having helped over 600,000 students across the country, the team at PROJECT ROCKIT have goals to influence 1,000,000 students nationwide against bullying by 2025.
In this episode, Rosie talks about the origin story of PROJECT ROCKIT, what drove her to be so passionate about bullying, and advice for children and adults who are experiencing persecution.
