Claire Rowe

Ninth-grader Claire Rowe of Ladue High School witnessed cyberbullying on Instagram when she was in middle school, and it affected her deeply. Realizing that she wanted to be an ambassador for those who couldn't defend themselves, she spearheaded a creative initiative to "STAMP" out harassment online. STAMP stands for "Students Together Against Mean Posts" and Claire's message aims to empower students to step up for others. Specifically, she endeavors to make sure that "social networking is no longer the social nightmare it has become" for some youth by empowering them to help each other out in tangible, meaningful ways. She also distributes blue rubber bracelets engraved with STAMP to remind everyone that this matters, not only to work together to create a better and kinder society, but also to save lives.
