bike keys are in my pocket! • first home away from home. living here for a month! enrolled myself as a summer school student at UVA! life is FULL of crazy possibilities incl getting a sore butt from riding my bicycle for three days (I know ) and getting lost walking home from the albert hijn, two blocks down (I know ) ❤️ wish me luck

Thanks @biggerthanus_thefilm for taking me beautiful places! 🙈
hhhmmm not feeling so lost after all✨Today I woke up very far away from home, and knew that my team @byebyeplasticbags had celebrated the first day of the island wide BAN on single use plastic bags, straws and polystyrene. that feeling. My heart is exploding with happy smiles too big for inside! Wish I could be at home for this moment, even if for only a second. This vision, this movement, You guys are keeping the fire alive🔥 THANK YOU • TERIMA KASIH.
One year ago today, I graduated from @greenschoolbali • how weird is that?! It took me a second to believe that it’s been a whole year already. No idea how time can move so fast.⏰Even weirder because if I hadn’t worked so hard to graduate a year early...I would be getting my high school diploma now. 😅 in a moment of reflection today I wrote a list of all my highlights in my “non-traditional” gap year: - Launching a new company and being able to sign company papers finally ✅ - Being in the most loving relationship with @garybencheghib ♥️ - Watching @isabelwijsen get better and better in her authentic crazy fashion outfits 😍🏆 - Starting @biggerthanus_thefilm - The steady build of @mountainmamasbali - CNN heroes and Time Magazine list of influential teens in one weekend - Bali introducing the ban on plastic bags! - Officially hiring @lillydaskalov and @tobythorpeaus on the full time team! ❗️For the question that keeps coming up of, “so now what...” and then the awkward...”what about university?” My answer is that maybe one day I’ll go. But right now, it feels like I’m building my own university. 💪 Next month you’ll see me somewhere on a campus for a quick summer course...but for now! I’m gonna have to continue like this 😘
learning so many things about child marriage, gender equality, girls rights and access to education📚with Memory for @biggerthanus_thefilm
Awkward newbie me. 😊back at it with @biggerthanus_thefilm
thank you Berlin last week for the time spent and stories shared with @Allianz 🌸
the oceans are rising. so are we. 🌊 going head first into the month of May! With an official 40 full time teams a part of the BBPB global family, the movement is growing stronger and bigger, a new project coming soon too. ✈️ my speaking tour taking me to Berlin, Australia, Aspen, New York, Malawi for the first few teasers! ❤️😘
Learning doesn’t stop at graduation📚and I’m so glad I can still go “back to school” to learn and teach in different ways around the world.🌱Today with 170 students talking “what next” after the school strikes. An amazing turnout last Friday with over a million students!👫But how can you keep the momentum building? What can you do to make a difference? 💪🙏
25% of the worlds population, but we are ... Incredible to have finished that together with all of you. This was the ending of my speech at the #fridaysforfuture school strike!
Standing strong. Rising up. I gave up on the traditional school education a long time ago. It needs fixing. Fun fact; I graduated a year early from high school so I could focus full time on changemaking. My last year, I was 31 days at school. my classroom is out here in the real world. My life school; @byebyeplasticbags @oneislandonevoice @mountainmamasbali ❤️ Comment if you agree that we need CHANGE in the classroom and what you think needs to change👇 #climatestrike
12 years old! this journey we started on 6 years ago has set a beautiful path for us! Humbled, proud, excited, nervous! Many emotions for this project, meeting my tribe - the changemakers and the leaders I look up to! ❤️ @biggerthanus_thefilm
This is my little start up office. my parents let me turn the garden house into my new house. A living room, a bedroom, a bathroom...but also, a workspace where all the creativity happens. Where our mission, our message from six years ago becomes the true living example; us youth may only be 25% of the worlds population but we are 100% of the future. ❤️

Selamat Hari Perempuan International!! ❤️ I feel so blessed with the women I have in my life and the women I meet on the front lines demanding change.

We can lead Indonesia into the future. Saya berharap semua wanita akan bangkit! 🙏 all women RISE.
Finally, the big reveal! ✨I am incredibly excited to share with you one of the new projects that I am a part of. Something that truly resonates with me, with you and with what is going on in the world today. Something is shifting globally, children are raising their voices, demanding change. Something is pulling us together, demanding collaboration. Something is happening that is BIGGER THAN US. @biggerthanus_thefilm 🌱🎬Can’t wait to bring the film into life! The next few months ahead we’ll be diving into the stories of those on the front lines. Those driven by that something “bigger than us” and unfolding what it really is to be a young changemaker. ❤️ Follow these links and watch out for more to come! https://biggerthanus-thefilm.com https://www.facebook.com/biggerthanusthefilm/ https://www.instagram.com/biggerthanus_thefilm/
