Why Do You Think Other Students And Teens Should Get Involved In Youth Activism? 

Try to be the change you want to see and do. Get involved in a moment that allows you to use your voice as a weapon against the odds.

How long have you been thinking about making change or engaging other youth in making change?

Since I saw that a change needed to be made.

Have there been any particularly important moments that keep you motivated?

Yes. And to see the smiles on other youths’ faces.

Do you have any stories to share about that experience?

Yes.

What issues or problems matter to you?

Making youths feel like we’re not dumb or stupid, but that our voices make a difference.

What motivates you to be involved in creating change in these areas? 

Wanting to see better for our youth and their families.

What do your friends and your family think of your involvement?

Love it!

How do you feel that your work has made a difference?

Yes, because it sets a trend for the next youths to want to get involved.
