Rannvijay to create awareness about cyber bullying

Actor-presenter Rannvijay Singha will be the face and host of the upcoming season of “Troll Police”, which will bring celebrities and their trolls face-to-face.

MTV has roped in investigators and a cyber team that traces these trolls and the faces behind the acts and Bollywood celebrities will then confront the faces behind these trolls.

Rannvijay will educate the youth, create awareness and highlight the issue of cyber bullying.

Raising awareness about cyber bullying

The cyber bullying workshop organised by the Samoa Fa’afafine Association (S.F.A.) has been hailed a success. 

Held last week Saturday, the workshop was considered a milestone achievement for S.F.A. because it brought out in numbers the young members of the association between the ages of16 and 40.

The turnout was impressive considering 30 percent of participants were non-S.F.A. members and 20 percent of participants were fa’afatama.

The workshop, held at Hotel Millennia Conference Room, was a half day full on event and funded by U.N. Global Fund. 

Presenters included Kevin Schuster who was also the main facilitator, Taimalelagi Kaisarina Salesa, Program Coordinator for Samoa National Youth Council and Charlize Leo, the reigning Miss S.F.A.

“It was great to be part of the workshop especially placing emphasis on what cyber bullying is and understanding the signs so everyone can stay alert,” said Mr. Schuster during his presentation.

The presentations were all from different perspectives but were all

“It’s surprising how cheap you can actually get people’s information on the black market.  It turns out there’s roughly about 16 billion dollars in identify theft and fraud; this was just last year. And it typically affects about 15.4 million Americans – I think that was the
