I am a political and gender activist and a youth mentor in my community for young girls and boys from the ages of 12 and above.
The biggest challenge that the youth is facing today is gender-based violence. I say this because it does not happen to girls only, but to boys as well.
The biggest take away from Global Scholar for me was the Diversity and Inclusion Action Lab, where I actually learned for the first time to be transparent and allow myself to be me without being someone else.
I would recommend GS for change-making because one is able to learn from her peers and is able to grasp different things from both my peers and the speakers.
