The man behind an award-winning app tackling cyber-bullying among young people has been shortlisted for an individual accolade.

Seun Oshinaike, CEO of Barking-based Silent Secret, has been nominated for a Rising Star award by third-sector organisation The Directory of Social Change.

Launched in November last year, the software is an anonymous platform for teenagers to share their thoughts and feelings. Earlier this month the app won the Internet Safety prize at the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards.
