For Women’s History Month I would like to encourage and raise up our next generation of leaders. The teenage girls whose natural fearlessness and determination will strike fear in the status quo and move mountains as if they were feathers. From national heroes like Emma Gonzalez to local leaders like the students I’ve met through BN Youth Activists. I dedicate this poem from Erin May Kelly on why teenage girls are stronger than you think. You continue to inspire me with your strength, passion, and dedication.
