Comprised of various individual profiles, Momentus explores the lives of the social activists that have inspired Hannah during her lifetime and the significant impacts they are making on our world. Featuring 19 exclusive interviews—conducted by Hannah herself—with activists, celebrities and youth change-makers such as Malala Yousafzai (Nobel Peace Prize Winner), Lilly Singh, AKA 'Superwoman' (Youtube Creator and Author) and Brad Montague (Creator of Kid President), the book highlights practical examples of the power of positive change in the world, whether large or small. Topics include discussion on acts of change surrounding the environment, education, bullying, equality and inclusivity.
"Momentus is a book for all those who want to be inspired to make a difference in their community," said Momentus author Hannah Alper. "I believe we all have the capacity and responsibility to create change. I don't care how old you are or how young you are, where you live or how much money you have. The ability to create change does not discriminate. It's in everyone."
As a ME to WE motivational speaker and WE ambassador, Hannah Alper is committed to promoting big change through small, everyday actions and believes in the power of young people to shape the world they want to live in. Momentus shares this journey on the global stage and demonstrates Hannah's message coming to life.
"Everyone has a gift that they can use to create positive change in our world, be it baking, singing, painting, writing, or running. When we apply these gifts to an issue in order to create change, the impact is extraordinary," Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE. "Hannah's gift is her words, and in this book, Hannah drives home the message that she has already shared with hundreds of thousands around the world through her blog and speeches—that the only challenge that people (whether they are young or simply young at heart) face is knowing where to start."
