My name is Jenna and I am from upstate New York. I got involved with Gen Z: WWTL because I want to contribute to the change happening in our world with a group of like-minded, motivated individuals. I hope to continue the fight for justice as I pursue a degree in environmental science and one day work for a NGO.
Noelle is an Arab-American student-advocate who will attend her first year at United World College in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina this fall. She grew up in Barrington, Rhode Island and is deeply passionate about reforming school curriculum to present diverse and culturally-relevant perspectives, especially in regards to history. She believes the key to an empathetic, tolerant, and anti-racist society lies in reforming our K-12 curriculum to reflect those values.
Hi, my name is Mya and I strive for change within our society. I think that acknowledgement is one of the first steps into inciting this change, and with acknowledgement comes education. I stand with Gen Z: We Want to Live, because I want to educate myself and the world about the problems that people of color face every single day.
