“I wish the government knew that young people are a lot more committed than they think when it comes to the things we’re passionate about.

There seems to be an unspoken but super common misconception that we’re unreliable, reckless and not as valuable as older generations when it comes to politics. I wish the government knew that these representations and misconceptions discourage young people from taking action and that with a little more open-mindedness, we can make real change and be a valuable asset.”
