Bushra Amiwala on How to Change the World


It’s all too easy to feel like there’s nothing we can do to change the world. If you’re not a politician or in a position of power, how do you make a difference? How can we be leaders for change in our everyday lives? Bushra Amiwala is showing us how we can do just that as she serves as the youngest Muslim elected official in the country.


Bushra was elected to the Skokie School Board at age 21 as a junior in college. Her local campaign earned her national attention, being recognized as Glamour Magazine’s College Woman of the Year, Seventeen Magazine's Voice of the Year, making the cover of TIME Magazine, and sharing her story at major events across the country to inspire others to take action.


Bushra joined Ten Minute Talks to share how young people can get involved in politics and become the next generation of leaders the world needs.
