Benefits of being in Digital Space
Sophia says, “The Digital space has helped me in my personal development, I remember being afraid of sharing my contents on social media platforms because I though that people will react negatively but after getting the knowledge about digital rights, citizenship and literacy, I can say I am now confident and I can post the contents that I have in mind which I think will be helpful to my audience.”

Digital Space Challenges and Measures
“I have been a victim of cyber bullying, some of the people following me have been commenting offensive words to my post and what I learnt from the intensive training I received about Digital Security is taking the initiative of not responding back to them rather report their comments on Instagram so that they remove them from my followers.
