Kateri A. Gasper, '83 alum and Senior Assistant District Attorney for the Queens DA’s Office, participated in a discussion on the impact of social media on teenage health. The discussion was hosted by The Queens Forum at LaGuardia Community College, and was featured in The Queens Tribune.

The panel said an issue with social media websites is the ability to remain anonymous. Students today tend to say things online that they would not say to a peer face to face. Because of the ability to post comments under an alias, it could be more difficult to track who is doing the bullying.

"Teenagers, on the one hand, seem to enjoy the fact that everybody can see what they’re doing but, on the other hand, don’t appreciate the consequences of everybody seeing what their doing," said Kateri Gasper. She often visits schools and organizations to speak with youth about the consequences of their actions before they engage in inappropriate behavior.
