“An activist is a person who campaigns for some kind of social change.” A teen activist is a young person who has found their voice and their passion. A well known teen activist is Malala Yousefzai. She was shot by a member of the Taliban because her cause is something the Taliban are opposed to: education for girls. Teen activists, in general, raise awareness about their cause. Another example is teen activist Sonita Alizadeh. She is a rap singer raising awareness about forced marriages. Teen activists don’t want to die for their cause, but they do take great risks. Both Malala and Sonita have done things that have put their well-being at risk. Both were fighting for things that are not okay in most parts of the world.
