Now See The Teen Politics
Hong Kong – Student activist Joshua Wong
Age – 15 yrs. (2012)

Young age, an asset – A skinny, bespectacled teen whose meager physical frame belies the ferocity of his politics. Student activist of Hong Kong, Joshua Wong sees his young age as an asset. “Young people will always be the pioneers …,” he said to Bloomberg News. “In a rally, who could walk faster, a 40-year-old or someone much younger?”

Teen Power of Leading – This is hardly Joshua’s first time rallying a protest crowd. At 15, he found the student activist group, “Scholarism.” In 2012 the group organized 120,000 protesters in a successful campaign against China’s attempts to bring its national curriculum to Hong Kong.
Just 15 years Old & Big Guts – In 2014 His daredevil attitude made the Chinese Government stir. Yeah! Your guess is right ……. just a 15 year Hong Kong boy Joshua Wong made hunger strike for democratic reforms.
Joshua doesn’t want to be compared – Joshua said he knew he could be punished by the government for his activism. But the student doesn’t seem to view himself martyr. He dismissed comparisons between him and Martin Luther King and defined his cause as far bigger than himself, saying, “Hong Kong is what inspires me.” Teens Voice Ultimately Heard.

Swat Valley – Malala Yousafzai young education reformer
Age – 17 Yrs. (2014)

“I am Malala- Yeah I am Malala, I have done what I have thought & whole world now knows how important is a teen’s voice. Taliban had banned girls from attending school. I raised my voice against it.” “It was not easy for me to fight with Taliban in my native place Mingora, North West frontier province of Pakistan.”

Do not fear at all- Her daring attitude helped her a lot. In spite of all difficulties, she raised her voice against Taliban by writing a blog for BBC under the pseudo name of Gul Makai when she was just 11 years old.
Courage Born – On October 9, 2012, a Taliban gunman shot her on forehead. Her condition was very critical; she lost consciousness and had to go for intensive rehabilitation. After long treatment she regained her consciousness. The terrorists thought this incident would deter her from pursuing her ambitions, but nothing changed in her life except that strength, power and courage replaced her weakness, fear and hopelessness.
World knows Malala- Her advocacy mission got international recognition. On 10 October 2014 she became youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate for her struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.
She received other awards & recognitions too. She set a foundation for girl’s education with name of “Malala Education Foundation” and took the pledge to fight for this cause till her last breath.

Teens Encroachment in NASA

Kansas – Clara Ma who named the curiosity mars rover
Age – 11 Yrs. (2012)

Curiosity a powerful tool- In our tender age we have curiosity for everything. It’s a powerful tool to us and Clara Ma proved it. At only 15 years old Clara Ma has earned her place in NASA history as the teen who named the “curiosity” Mars rover. She herself said- “Curiosity is such a powerful force and without it, we wouldn’t be who we are today. Curiosity is the passion that drives us through our daily lives”. On 6 august 2012 Mars Rover curiosity successfully landed at Mars.
Imagination pays – Imagination leads us to turn it into reality & a High school sophomore Clara Ma from Lenexa, Kansas did it. Ma read an article about NASA’s essay contest to name the Mars rover while in her sixth grade science class in 2009. More than 9,000 students from all 50 states enrolled for the contest. She said “I was really interested in space, but thought space was something I could only read about in books and look at during the night from far away, Ma said “I thought that I would never be able to get close to it, so for me, naming the Mars rover would at least be one step closer. She finally got famous by winning this contest.
