As a boy, I find this success inspiring. It’s not just for girls. It shows that young people, working together, can make change happen. I go through every day looking around and seeing all of the things that just aren’t right, all the ways that we teenagers are taken for granted, exploited, and taken advantage of. It’s easy to think that we can’t do anything about it, that we have to wait until that magic future when we are the adults, but this victory shows that we can do things now, that we can speak truth to power and be heard. A baby lion is a lion nonetheless.
