The Gift of Activism
January 9, 2018
Hosted by The Express Yourself! STAR On-Air Teen Team
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead Change comes only with the will of the people, and our actions as individuals contribute to the strength of a collective force that has the power to drive the world in a fresh new direction. Express Yourself! launches a new year with hosts and reporters Brigitte Jia, Joven Hundal, Henna Hundal, and Caitlin Sim conversing about what activism means to them and how they perceive it in their daily lives. Brigitte reads a chapter she wrote for the forthcoming book, Be the Star You Are! for Milliennials. Joven gives his perspective on what’s happening globally with World Watch, Henna recounts activities at Harvard with student activism, and Caitlin shares activism in literature. Activism is sticking up for anything that is unjust. Stand up for others. Show empathy. The voices of youth are strong and vibrant. Listen. Heed. Act.
