Jakarta, ID (October 19, 2019) –A discussion was being held as a part of a project titled #TidakMewakiliSaya (Not Representing Me). Designed as a collaboration project by Youth IGF Indonesia together with Search for Common Ground, KaMu, Campaign and Indonesian Future Leaders, the name of this project has the meaning that violence needs to be stop because it is not representing “me” as a young generation.

Therefore, cyberbullying became the main topic that Agita brought to this sharing session. The heated and emotional discussion led Agita into thinking how cyberbullying can make depression and anxiety more likely to develop, exacerbate existing mental health issues, disrupt academic performance, and impact overall happiness and well-being. She expected that the platform she developed would become the answer for the cyberbullying issue.

Besides cyberbullying, the session was also holding up internet governance and Industrial Revolution 4.0 as the topics to be discussed.
