Bipana sharma was only eleven years old when she inspired to create a child friendly society in Nepal. By the time she was sixteen, she was doing these extraordinary things that was not just benefiting the society in primary or district level, but was slowly creating a cornucopia of empowerment and motivation in national level. However, very few were actually familiar with Bipana Sharma. It was necessary to bring her into “the spotlight”, provide her right exposure, and ultimately create ripple effect. It was necessary to give voice to youths like her and many others who did not just believed in change, but inspired change.
Glocal Teen Hero is a platform based on one such idea. I remember being a teenager myself. Conflicting between what I was supposed to do, to what I really wanted to do. It was expected of me to study and ace my examination; however, that barely motivated me, leave alone inspire me to go beyond my reach. Our collaboration of Glocal Teen Hero encourage teenagers to build a different history. We look forward to address their initiation and give them an opportunity to deliver what they are best at.
