"In this fucked up world all you can hope for is change, and I'd rather be a hypocrite to you now than a zombie forever."

Hey, you! 
Bright person with something to say. 

Disagree with government policy?
Want to protest for equality?
Fed up with feeling oppressed?

Take action! Don't be passive, be active and stand up for your beliefs. Why should anybody stop you from speaking out against injustice?
Have your sayJust because you're a thinking girl, doesn't mean you can't be an acting girl at the same time. It doesn't take much and you're probably already an acting girl without knowing it!

All you need to do is focus on treating people with respect and fairness. By being more selfless than selfish you can spread love, peace and understanding

There are so many things you could do to Take Action:

Isn't that beautiful? So are you!

Volunteer in your local community. Or abroad. Just anywhere. Teach children, help to save the environment, raise money for charity. There are so many sources for volunteering and many of them can be found online. It's a win-win situation because you get to help others and in return find a sense of satisfaction deposited within you. 

Join an organisation or charity. Really contribute to making a difference. Maybe you're a Greenpeace girl or a LGBTQ lady or maybe you simply want to bake cookies for Barnados to sell. There are many pressure groups and charities that need your attention and intellect in order to express their message and get the change they want.

Be kind-hearted. Sometimes we see things that aren't quite right but say nothing because it's okay to do so. Anyway, it's not your problem. I'm not saying you should start arguments every time somebody snaps at another person or start preaching morals for all to hear but if you think somebody feels bullied or is treated unfairly then you could try to be extra kind to that person so they don't feel so alone. 

Smile. It's contagious, it's easily achieved and easy to give to others. It's called a smile and promptly induces happiness; a by-product of love.

Write, Draw, Sing. Express yourself in whichever way you choose. Creativity is a sure-fire asset that you do possess even if you're not stereotypically this-or-that. You can use your way with words to influence others, or your skilled hands or even just your compassion when speaking. Anything you do can be a creative outlet for your emotions or views.

Just be you. There's an old saying that goes something like: "Work on your character and your reputation will follow." It's not lying! Popularity falters, looks fade and while you're busy wondering how others see you, those others are busy thinking about themselves! By committing yourself to truly loving yourself and not giving into jealousy or acting selfishly, you will inspire others with your individuality. It really is more important than 'fitting in' because your radiance will make you well-liked and admired anyway! 

Change the world with your voice, smile and words. I believe in you!
