1. Craig Kielburger (@craigkielburger)
Craig Kielburger is the founder of "Free The Children", a non-governmental organization that serves to protect children's rights. He was inspired to make social change when he was only 12 years old after reading an article on child labor. He began to research child labor and then created an organization with his friends called "twelve-twelve year olds". Now Kielburger's 12-year old inspiration has led to what is now which is now an international organization, with 45 participatory countries. Craig is an inspiration because his work has demonstrated that when we act on our passion, beliefs and inspirations, no matter how young, we can achieve great things.

@Dosomething is a twitter account for an organization that promotes youth to follow what they're passionate about and act on it! Their website is, and it offers tons of suggestions on campaigns to run, ways to fundraise for your cause/club and ways to get people motivated for your cause. By following Do Something, I get updates on poverty facts, campaigns that are running and fun ideas to get causes off the ground. It's inspiring because it helps empowers me to act on my interests and Do Something!!/dosomething

3. The Economist (@theeconomist)
Although it might sound boring, The Economist is a great magazine that prints international news articles weekly. The reason that I follow the Economist is because although I'm sometimes too busy to read the newspaper or watch the news, I think that knowing about what's going on in the world is very important.  By Following the Economist on Twitter, I get all kinds of updates on important international stories.
