Isabel and Melati were the only two youth leaders to receive the accolade. Bye Bye Plastic Bags is a social initiative driven by youth to say no to single-use plastic bags.
“I really hope we can open people’s minds more. We are living proof that kids can be the change,” said Isabel in a recent video by BBC Storyworks. “The ones who dare to explore are the ones that can contribute something better to the world. So go out there and explore everything the world has to offer.”
