From being apart of the younger generation, we are often unheard and told we are too uneducated. But it is our future that being shaped. Even as a 17 year old, I believe it is so important to speak out and use our voices. Although I cannot vote in this upcoming election, my voice can be heard. This election will affect our future for the best or the worst. Youth Speaks Out is not only a platform to be heard, but a platform to share your take on certain topics, whether it be Gun Control or Mental Health. We can no longer be silent, we must be heard. You are educated, your opinions are valid, you deserve to be heard.
