Transcript for Using H&M’s Role Model initiative to empower change
Dr. Jen on her Instagram @drjashton. To an initiative helping kids make a difference and our contributor here to tell us more about it. There is something incredibly inspiring about seeing the world through a child's eyes. I think all can agree. I learned how they are helping little ones make a big difference. Take a look. Launched the role models initiative to champion and tell stories of kids making a positive change in the world. Perfect partner. Naomi, tell us about it. Absolutely. There are so many incredible kids working to build a better, more inclusive world. It is a new show features families putting kindness into action in their communities. So it makes sense first to collaborate with H&M kids to promote their role models initiative and documentary that strives to amplify the voices of a younger generation. The main role models of today. Kids can save the planet. Why is it important for you and kids like you to share these stories? It is so important to remind people of the power that one person no matter how old they are has to make a difference. Our hope is that sharing stories will help people feel more connected to those who are putting kindness into action and inspiring young people to be a force for good and to lead in their own communities. In 2018 when I was just 11 years old, I organized a walkout at my school. I wanted to take a stand against gun violence and acknowledge all the lives lost because of it. Especially the young black girls who are too often left out of the news coverage when they are victims. I did this because I believed in this cause. I believed that my voice needed to be heard and most importantly I did it because it was the right thick to do. When someone stands up for justice and fairness it is called activism and it can take many different forms. This week we're talking about what activism looks like and how you can get involved. We have so many teachers and parents watching this, I know they are excited. How can they get involved? We want to hear from you. If you know someone going above and beyond share their story at h&m.com/kids. Thanks to our sponsor H&M is something we can all get on board with. Check out the documentary as well as the episodes focusing on young people who are making the world a better place. All right, I feel inspired and called my parents what was I doing at Naomi's age? They said getting on our nerves. I know you were inspired. What were you doing at that age? The same thing, yeah. Talking on the phone. Listening to music. Pretty much that is about it. I was driving my parents crazy. How old is that young lady? 13. She's really something. She's really something. Alicia, thank you so much. Thank you, Alicia.
