about

One person, one action, one moment can make a difference. Momentus: Small Acts, Big Change provides tangible, real-life, and current examples that back up this idea. This book is more than a “how-to” guide—Hannah Alper gets to the heart of what sparks people to create change. A youth activist herself, Hannah explores the lives of the social activists who have inspired her and the significant impacts they are making locally and globally.
 
Featuring 19 exclusive interviews—conducted personally by Hannah—with activists, youth change-makers, and celebrities such as Malala Yousafzai (Nobel Peace Prize Winner), Lilly Singh a.k.a. Superwoman (YouTube Creator and author), and Brad Montague (Creator of Kid President), the book highlights practical examples of the power of positive change in the world, whether large or small.

Hannah also shares her personal journey as a youth activist, blogger, motivational speaker, and WE Ambassador. Momentus: Small Acts, Big Change will motivate you to find your spark and give you the tools to make your change happen.

Topics include discussion on acts of change regarding issues such as the environment, education, bullying, equality, and inclusivity.
