It’s been a big year for Hannah Alper. Besides sharing the stage with former governor general Michaëlle Jean and Martin Luther King III on a cross-country We Day tour to promote youth empowerment, she also helped launch Free the Children’s “We Create Change” campaign and was the official “eco-blogger” for the Juno Awards. Oh, and she celebrated her 10th birthday with a cake covered in Skittles. Now that the tour’s over, the pint-sized activist will continue to update her popular environmentalist blog, “CallMeHannah.ca” (thanks Carly Rae), explore her passions for reading and karate, and face her most daunting challenge yet: the fifth grade.
