Here is an image and two videos from my first protest. It was actually the Climate March back in 2014, and I went as an extra credit opportunity for an AP Literature class. Little did I know that this protest would spark my interest in activism and lead to my involvement with many grassroots organizations. Now, as a college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in political science and community change studies, I’m committed to actualizing social change for disadvantaged communities. My blog is a small step towards that. I am forever grateful for my AP Literature teacher Mr. Egashira for not only giving this assignment, but for teaching us the importance of questioning society and getting civically engaged.
