Now is the time to act upon the crisis that has confronted humanity. I am an American youth activist living abroad in Budapest, Hungary, and as a 13-year-old girl, I am doing everything in my power to revive the future that is slowly being taken away from us. Greta Thunberg and Jane Goodall have inspired me to take part in the global environmental activism. Living abroad has me seeing a broader picture of environmentalism, which motivates me to act on a more global scale. I am excited to have joined a youth activism group through Brown University called the "Youth Social Change Fellowship" that will teach me to become a more powerful activist. Now is the time for us young people to rise and let our voices be heard.
