Rosie Thomas OAM (AUS)

Rosie launched PROJECT ROCKIT with her sister when she was fresh out of high school and dedicated the last 14 years to growing Australia’s youth-driven movement against bullying, hate and prejudice.

PROJECT ROCKIT has positively impacted hundreds of thousands of young people and now serves as the go-to youth cybersafety partner of Google, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Rosie is relentlessly passionate about engineering a kinder digital world and serves on the Global Safety Advisory Boards of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to ensure young people’s voices are heard. Rosie‘s work has been recognised by UNICEF among the 12 Digital Champions for Children’s Rights in the Digital Age and was honoured in Washington D.C. with the International Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cybersafety.

In 2019, Rosie received the Order of Australia Medal, recognising her service to young people and her work against bullying and in 2020 was named a 2020 Westpac Social Change Fellow.
