When 15-year-old Jack Andraka scooped the Intel Gordon E. Moore prize for his revolutionary cancer diagnosis tool in 2012, he touched and inspired millions of people across the globe. Jack believes young people can make a difference by dreaming big, and he’s currently devising a life-changing sensor that detects diseases.

Through brightFuture, Unilever wants to inspire more people to make positive changes that can build a sustainable future. Upworthy shares this outlook and amplifies visual content that inspires a global online community of millions. To highlight the inspiring stories of kids and young adults, Upworthy has partnered with Unilever to create a brightFuture mini-hub that they hope will build momentum behind the existing movement for positive change.

Young people can effect change in so many ways. Take Cassandra, a 16-year-old changemaker who says “Young people are the now generation.” At just 10 years old, she founded TGIF, an organization to Turn Grease Into Food. With help from her friends and local community, Cassandra devised a scalable model for turning waste cooking oil from local restaurants into fuel for poor families in her area. Join the Upworthy discussion and leave your comment on her amazing story.
