Sixteen-year-old activist Greta Thunberg has proven competence far beyond many world leaders. She maintains unwavering dedication to her mission: combating the climate crisis. 

Thunberg has no patience for the lack of a global reaction to climate change, an ongoing injustice impacting the lives of millions. As a result, she began spending her Fridays striking in front of the Swedish parliament and organized millions of others to do the same.

But perhaps politics will not be in Thunberg's future. There's an ongoing discussion as to whether or not activism and politics can overlap in a single person, and some believe Thunberg will be able to impart more change by continuing to hold world leaders accountable as an activist.

Although Thunberg's clarity and conviction may shock many, her fans know she is able to pierce through the most obtuse crowds. There is simply no time to listen, or care, about climate change deniers. Her ability to prosthelytize is already proven to unite people across the world—the very kind of leadership the country needs. Per the Guardian, Thunberg commented:

“I don’t care about age. Nor do I care about those who do not accept the science. I don’t have as much experience, and therefore I listen more. But I also have the right to express my opinion, no matter my age. Being young is a great advantage, since we see the world from a new perspective and we are not afraid to make radical changes.”

Thunberg is a hero in every way. Politicians, on the other hand, rarely are. Like Lyanna Mormont, Thunberg is the leader we do not deserve, but the leader we need. She's already proven that she doesn't need a presidential title to bring about major change.
