For me, Apathy is Boring is a testament to the ability of youth in leading meaningful social change. Youth civic and democratic engagement is crucial if we hope to have our needs reflected in policy and in decision-making. The opportunity to empower diverse youth by centering them as agents of change is one that truly excites me!”
