Quick reminder: You’re never too young to make a difference.

Never underestimate a girl on a mission.

To end Women's History Month on a high note, The Huffington Post is highlighting eight young women making big differences in their communities. These young girls are impacting all different type of areas including environmental study, fashion and medicine.

From Marley Dias, a sixth grader who started her own book drive to highlight storylines featuring black girls, to Anaya Lee Willabus, the youngest person in the U.S. to publish a chapter book -- these change-makers are the next generation of badass women. So keep close watch.

Here's to these girls making herstory.

Kari Schott
Founder of Jordan High School Young Democrats in Utah, Kari Schott helped organize a bake sale at school that highlighted the gender pay gap. How exactly? Men paid $1 for sweet treats, while women paid 77 cents.
Marley Dias
One day, New Jersey-native Marley Dias informed her mom she was “sick of reading books about white boy and dogs.” To combat this, she started the #1000BlackGirlsBooks book drive so she could collect books that feature black girls and donate them to other kids.
Mikaila Ulmer
BeeSweet Lemonade founder Mikaila Ulmer sells lemonade sweetened with local honey and donates a portion of her profits to organizations working to save honey bees. When she was just 10 years old, the Austin-based queen bee entrepreneur received $60,000 from an investor on “Shark Tank” to take her business to the next level. Ulmer recently signed a multimillion-dollar contract to sell her Lemonade in Whole Foods.
Nicole Ticea
When she was in tenth grade, Nicole Ticea used a science fair contest to create an early-stage HIV test. The Vancouver-native created a test that analyzes a pinprick of blood to check for an infection of the virus. It won her first place at the 2014 Regional Snofi BioGENEius science fair contest, and earned the Young Scientist Award at the 2015 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
Anaya Lee Willabus
Anaya Lee Willabus became the youngest person in the U.S. to publish a chapter book writing The Day Mohan Found His Confidence when she was only 8 years old. The Brooklyn native wrote the book about a young boy who overcomes challenges with the help of his family and friends.
Isabel Ivanescu
Isabel Ivanescu from Dearborn Heights, Michigan created a nonprofit called houseDetroit in 2016. The high-schooler wants to end homelessness in Detroit by renovating all the abandoned houses in the city. She recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $80,000 for the project.
Grace Jones
Grace Jones has become an advocate and spokesperson in the UK for ending food waste by giving speeches and encouraging her peers to practice composting and recycling. Over the last few years, the London-based teen has worked to both spread awareness and educate her fellow teens to practice more sustainable ways of preserving food.
Madeline Stuart
In 2015, 19-year-old Madeline Stuart became the first person with Down Syndrome to walk the runway in New York Fashion Week. Since then, the Australian-native has landed multiple modeling contacts, walked in numerous other fashion shows and modeled in a beautiful bridal photo shoot.
