'Make It Happen reminds us that people of any age can create change in their communities. From finding allies to setting goals, everyone who wants to contribute to a better future can learn from Amika's book.' Malala Yousafzai GET UP. SPEAK UP. DON'T GIVE UP. The world is waking up to the fact that society is arranged to benefit some more than others. There is much that needs changing. And you can be the one to do it. Anyone can make history, including a teenager launching a global campaign from their bedroom. And Amika will show you how, in this essential and inspirational step-by-step guide to being an activist. Are your favourite brands making little effort to be diverse? Are the people who've been hardest hit by COVID-19 not getting the support they need? Is the environment being overlooked in favour of driving profits? Amika George succeeded in campaigning to get the government to fund free period products in every school across England. Make It Happen is her guide to being an effective activist. With chapters on finding your crowd and creating allies, how to get those in positions of power and influence to listen, how to use social media effectively and how to look after your mental health while protesting. Amika will you show you how you can make real and lasting changes in your world. Featuring candid interviews with award-winning campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez, host of The Guilty Feminist podcast, Deborah Frances-White, founder of the Gurls Talk network and podcast Adwoa Aboah, and founder of The Pink Protest Scarlett Curtis, Make It Happen is the go-to handbook for the changemaker in you.

'Make It Happen reminds us that people of any age can create change in their communities. From finding allies to setting goals, everyone who wants to contribute to a better future can learn from Amika's book.' Malala Yousafzai GET UP. SPEAK UP. DON'T GIVE UP. In the spring of 2017, 17-year-old Amika George founded the Free Periods movement on behalf of every schoolgirl who couldn't afford tampons or sanitary towels. Three years later, in January 2020, these products became freely available to every schoolgirl in England for the first time, funded by the government. Anyone can make history, including a teenager launching a global campaign from their bedroom. And Amika will show you how, in this essential guide to being an activist. With chapters on finding your crowd and creating allies, going public with your campaign, how to use social media effectively and how to look after your mental health while protesting, Amika will show you how you can effect real and lasting change in your community, on the streets of your city, on your social media feed, in your country and in YOUR world. * Is the environment being overlooked in favour of driving profits? * Do you see injustice and suffering all around you? * Have you hit upon a way to make the world a better place? This - rallying cry, stories and lessons, and interviews from Amika's fellow protestors and other changemakers, including Caroline Criado-Perez, Deborah Frances-White, Adwoa Aboah, Nicola Mendelsohn and Scarlett Curtis - is your book. It's not too late. You're not too young. You are important. Rise up and be the change you want to see.
