"Darieth Chisolm allowed us inside her world so as to share both her brightest successes as a top journalist and her darkest secrets; the result of cyber-bullying. Her impassioned presentation left us with a feeling that despite any circumstances, truth gives us strength and hope"
"At the recent Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center's Martin Luther King event, Darieth Chisolm shared a riveting and personal story of adult bullying. Bullies need to know that we are strong enough to tell the truth and thus not let them win. I hope her brave response is an example to all, so that others who hear of her experience will reach out for help if they find themselves in such an unfortunate situation"
"Darieth Chisholm is a passionate, informed, and engaging speaker. Her ability to integrate her personal story into the theme of our Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration and make it relevant ensured that we had one of the most successful events in years. She had the attention of every person in the room and left us with much to think about and act on"
"Darieth was a great addition to an annual program at our school with a focus on professional development. Darieth's depiction of her struggles were a somber reminder of how social media can be abused and how many innocent people fall victim to cyber-sex crimes. More inspiring, though, was her story of not just overcoming such adversity but becoming a key advocate in the fight against these crimes. Our attendees left with an increased knowledge of criminal cyber activity that plagues today's society and with a sense of confidence in recognizing, reporting, and taking action against it."
