This also shows that it’s not just groups of BAD people that try to stop teen activists. Another example of groups trying to stop teen activists is Malala. In the video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjGL6YY6oM, we learned about the heroic actions of Malala even when people tried to stop her. A bad group called the Taliban attempted using violence to make her stop protesting against the bad things they were doing, like taking away girls’ education.
Furthermore, the Germans identified the Jews as less than human, separate, and different. Anne doesn’t seem to believe any of those things about herself or other Jewish people, but she is forced to live in a country that does. This contributes a different identity to Anne’s later self as she becomes a fearful person, living on the brink of disaster. Anne described the Jewish’s lives once their freedoms were taken away. “Jews were required to wear a yellow star; Jews were required to turn in their bicycles; Jews were forbidden to use streetcars; Jews were forbidden to ride in cars, even their own; Jews were required to do their shopping between 3 and 5 P.M.; Jews were required to frequent only Jewish-owned barbershops and beauty parlors; Jews were forbidden to be out on the streets between 8 P.M. and 6 A.M.; Jews were forbidden to go to theaters, movies or any other forms of entertainment; Jews were forbidden to use swimming pools” -On June 20, 1942 Page 4.
Anne Frank was a young girl around the age of 13 when they first went into hiding. They were in hiding for two years, from the year 1942 until 1944. Then once they took her out of hiding, she went to the nazi’s concentration camps. She died at the age of 16 in Bergen-Belsen in Germany. In the play Anne Frank said,“In Spite of everything, I still believe people are good at heart”.
Teen activists can’t do big things/changes by themselves. Here are some examples. Many activists get in danger because of the cause their supporting. That can lead to physical or mental violence.
( The Diary of Anne Frank: What it Means Today, Ross)Anne was only fifteen years old when she passed away. History.com explains that Edith Frank starved to death in Auschwitz sometime in January, 1945. The first boy Anne ever loved, and perhaps her only friend in hiding, Peter Van Pels, died in Mauthausen, May 1945. Hermann Van Pels, Peters father, passed in Spring, most-likely in Theresienstadt. Fritz Pfeffer died of illness in Neuengamme late December 1944.
One example of the teen activist fights for what they believe in even though there life's may be at risk is, Malala. She spoke up so girls could go to school even though she was targeted by the Taliban. For example, Kristin Lewis says, “ she was also a crusader for girls’ right to go to school. This work made her famous throughout Pakistan and around the world. It also made her targeted by the Taliban” (2) This proves that Malala fought for
It was on her 13th birthday that she got a diary. In her diary, she wrote about her friendships, crushes and her academic performance at school. Anne had an older sister named Margot, and they attended a Jewish school in Amsterdam. In this diary, the Franks moved to Netherlands from Germany because they feared prosecution. After the Germans invaded the Netherlands in 1940, the Franks, another family called the van Daans and Mr Russell hid in a small secret annex above Otto Frank’s, Anne’s father’s office.
Born in Bethlehem from Eliud and Ismeria, Saint Anne came into this world. However, there is no specific date of when she was born.

Teen activism “I don’t see anything uncommon in it,” states Alex Lin a former teen activist. Teen activists, who are they, what do they stand for ,and what does it take to become one? Teen activists make a big difference in this world, they devote time and energy to helping others a they don’t let challenges get in their way ,they stand up for what they believe in, and they encourage others to do so. All it takes to become one is lots of determination and a voice and the bravery to stand up! Alex Lin!
Did you know that Malala has her own “Malala Day” in the United Nations, and Alex Lin got his own bill passed when he was only a teen? Both of these people are or were teen activists. You may be asking what a teen activist is. A teen activist is a teen that is speaking up against something that is wrong. A teen activist might start marches, rallies, and speeches that support their cause.
In fact, the world is filled with teen activists who recognize problems within their world or communities, speak out to raise awareness, and act to reverse the problems. Teens need to first recognize problems in their community, before going on to impact the world. For example, Malala Yousafzai recognized the need for girls’ education after being denied education herself. As a young girl, the Taliban deprived her of her right to go to school. She realized that the Taliban didn’t want girls to go to school because it would give women more power (“Comedy Central, The Daily Show - Malala”).While not nearly as intense as Malala’s experience, nine-year-old Alex Lin’s situation allowed him
There are many Teen activists in the world. And they all have a lot in common and a lot they do different. All teen activists have to speak out to spread the word of their claim. For example, Malala Yousafzai chose to go worldwide and got on youtube and tv interviews. Alex Lin however did not he didn’t have as big of a problem so he stayed local in his community and spread the word by mouth in his community.
The three teen activists who inspire me the most are Malala Yousafzai, Faye Carey, and Emily Rigel. The first teen that supports the idea that teen activists inspire people to do good things, is Faye Carey. Faye Carey fights for new homes of abandoned dogs. In an article from News Hub, Teenage Girl is Dogs’ Best Friend, it says she wants “to give animals a second chance.”
These activists try to do what is right with all they can, they volunteer their time and money to help others in need. The main theme of this is about teen activists who help with bullying.
