Meet Misimi Isimi, The 9-Year-Old Environmentalist And Gender Equality Advocate

This impressive nine-year-old, Misimi Isimi, is one of Nigeria's youngest environmentalists and gender equality advocates. Her passions include teaching other children about the importance of gender equality, personal hygiene and protecting our environment.

You, wondering what you were doing when you were nine years old:

Misimi is currently the president of Eco-kids green club – a club designed to inspire children to become lifelong environmental stewards.

Not even 10 years old yet, Misimi has already led awareness programmes on World Environment Day and Earth Day about environmental protection. She's also led sensitization programmes in primary schools: educating other kids on the importance of healthy-living habits.

Her biggest vision is to partner with organizations that'll help her achieve her aim of promoting Global Goals 4 and 5 (gender equality and quality education) for all kids – especially underprivileged kids.

On the International Day of the Girl Child, Misimi celebrated the strength and resilience of girls, using martial arts as her campaign to stop the violence and discrimination girls face on a daily basis.

As if that wasn't amazing enough, she was then recently honoured as the first child environmentalist in Nigeria at the Africa Clean-up Awards thanks to her tireless efforts.

Not showing any signs of slowing down, Misimi is now working on her very own environmental documentary and a magazine called Ade and the Wheelie Bin.
