Akia, In Her Own Words

"We chose Akia S. Callum as our hero for this project because she encapsulates the time we live in right now of the youth voice being the loudest and most powerful voice we have right now.  After the death of George Floyd, there was an increase in youth activism across the board for racial equity, environmental justice, and education.  Youth across the nation are waking up and realizing the power they hold and Akia S. Callum is one of those youth voices who continue to use their power to create a better place for her community while continuing to lift the next generation up."
