We see heroes in our books, movies and television shows all the time. But heroes are not just in our imaginations. There are real heroes here on Earth.

For example, Greta Thunberg is a Swedish activist. When she was 15, she staged her first climate protest outside the Swedish parliament in 2018. Since then, she has helped create the “Fridays for Futures” movement. She is known for bringing attention to climate change to kids all over the world. This is known as “The Greta Effect.” In 2019, she became the youngest person to win Time’s Person of the Year. She also published a book called “No One is Too Small to Make a Difference.”

Who is your hero on Earth and why?
