"My name is Arielle, which means lioness in Hebrew. As a born and raised New Yorker, I strive to incorporate the identity of my name into the work that I do: resilient, outspoken, and unyielding. I've worked on campaigns, organizations, and protests across the country, helping to amplify the voices of the youth. It is up to us, especially those with privilege, to pass the mic and make sure that all voices and stories are being told and listened to. Youth have a specific job to support each other and not only speak our beliefs but act on them through motions like lobbying, protesting, fundraising, and voting. No one else will fight for us. It's up to us. My goal is to help and support others who have and are trying to find their voice through activism and social justice work. The more powerful, informed, and organized the youth is, the more we are able to create change within our communities and our country. We'll be the ones to make it happen -- we are the ones everyone has been waiting for."
"There's something powerful to be said about wearing your beliefs on your sleeve -- literally. Our society is riddled with issues and I think that allowing people the opportunity to speak their mind in such a direct way and non-verbal way opens the door for discussion. It serves as a daily reminder that there's work to do. We live in a time of unfortunate uncertainty, and the fact that BOY MEETS GIRL® allows people to support causes and the people working on them is unique and bold. We need more boldness in this world."
