The Next Generation of Disruptors

We deserve

to be welcome / to be heard / to go to schools that value and develop our potential / to be delicate, beautiful, and exquisitely sensitive / to make mistakes and learn from them / to dream up and build a world that is better than this one / to hope beyond our experience / equity, joy, and love / justice, just like anyone.

We are 100% young, energetic, and ambitious.
