"Millennials have the power to change the public policy and change the cycle of illiteracy, homelessness, hardship, of anything, so let's end it together today. The change begins with you."

2) Kristen Confroy

"So to all young people that find themselves with the opportunity to lead, I say take it on with the upmost confidence and be the difference you want to see in the world because you can... and you should."

3) Jay Seetharaman

"If you saw the opportunity with your eyes, felt the fire in your gut, and let your mind outline the possibilities, ask yourself a simple question: Why not you?"

4) Clara Wruck

"We have to empower our young people to change the world, not just because it feels good, but because it is true. And our children deserve to know that."

5) Andrew Branstetter

"Humans have a tendency to underestimate how much we have impacted others."

6) Hadley Orr

"People are starved for honesty and vulnerability in an age of social media perfection.  Simple truths about how to be intentional with people are the easy building blocks of relationships, which are the foundation of anything sustainable when working with people."

7) Nick Kane

"And if you ever find yourself down or depressed. Find something or someone to give back to."

8) Harry Reu

"Everyone is capable of finding a craft, investing time into it, and then teaching others about it."

9) Mark Tratt

"There is no substitute for faith. It cannot be taught, but it can be learned. Whoever masters faith behind desire is destined to high achievement."

10) Siriana Abboud

"My work is to bring the world into my classroom and empower my students to change the world."
