How Teens Make a Difference in Communities


“Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.” - Albert Einstein

Keerthi, both British and American, is our star host. Our show is all about teens making a difference in communities, and how you, as a teen, can make a difference. In segment one, British Keerthi, talks about how speech and debate can make an impact. In segment two, American Keerthi discusses teen leaders who have changed the world, and how you can learn from them.

To make an impact as a teen, communication is essential. Participating in speech and debate can help teens make an impact on the world in several ways by developing communication skills, building confidence, encouraging critical thinking, and advocating for important causes. Use your debate skills to slingshot yourself through the world and solve the chess game of life!

A few examples of teenagers who have made a significant impact on the world through their activism, bravery, and perseverance include Anne Frank, Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thunberg, Claudette Colvin, Jazz Jennings, and many more. Teens can change the world in many ways, including getting involved in your community, advocating for important causes,

using social media to spread awareness, starting your own initiatives, and

leading by example.

Teens, find your passion, identify your strengths, and take action to make a positive change. Harness your will and your dreams to change the world!
