Rosie and Lucy Thomas are cofounders of PROJECT ROCKIT: Australia’s youth-driven movement against (cyber)bullying, hate and prejudice. The sisters launched the program back in 2006 when they were fresh out of school because they saw how bullying was robbing their peers of opportunity. With the belief that the world should be a place where kindness and respect thrive over bullying and all young people should be free to realise their potential, PROJECT ROCKIT was born. Since then, they’ve been sending relatable young people into schools to run cool and credible workshops that tackle (cyber)bullying and build leadership. PROJECT ROCKIT has now positively impacted hundreds of thousands of young Australians, earning the reputation in schools as the ‘student-favourite’.
Growing up, Lucy Thomas always figured that “someone should really do something about bullying.” Then she realised: I am that someone. Now with over 10 years experience in group facilitation, public speaking and youth work, Lucy has personally reached thousands of young people and established herself as a creative and innovative force in the youth space.
