Have you ever felt imposter syndrome because of your age?

Ziad Ahmed (he/him) is an American-Muslim-Bangladeshi entrepreneur and speaker. He's the CEO/Co-Founder of JUV Consulting, a Generation Z consultancy that has collaborated with over 20 Fortune 500 companies, gaining recognition from the New York Times and earning him a spot on Forbes' 2019 #30Under30 list at the age of 19.

Severn Cullis-Suzuki gained international attention at the age of 12 when she delivered her famous speech at the UN Earth Summit in Rio in 1992. The speech earned her the moniker "The Girl Who Silenced the World for 5 Minutes." and she received recognition in the United Nations Environment Programme's Global 500 Roll of Honour. Severn has continued to speak to audiences around the world about the necessity of keeping the future in mind for environmental sustainability and has published several books including, ‘The Day You Will Change the World’.

In the third episode of season 3, Confessions of a Climate Activist, Clover sits down with Ziad Ahmed and Severn Cullis-Suzuki to explore how it feels to wear the label of a 'youth activist' and the messiness and nuance that comes with it. The episode ends with a juicy climate confession from both Ziad and Severn!

”I believe that so many more of us deserve a seat at the table.” - Ziad Ahmed

“There’s something really powerful about young people standing up for future generations.” - Severn Cullis-Suzuki
