DeAndre Roberts

20-year-old activist from California

DeAndre Roberts is 20 years old and is from California. He works in human rights.

DeAndre's mother always taught him that if he wanted something, he had to put a plan into action in order to achieve it. With that he developed his mantra, "Change starts with someone, so why not me?"

The impact of his actions can be compared to a small pebble thrown into a large lake. Even though the immediate impact is small, it allows others to become both inspired by his work and give them that extra push they need to get involved.
