About Hannah


Hannah is a dynamic public speaker, using her voice to motivate people of all ages to identify their passion and take meaningful action. Her journey as a youth activist shows that when it comes to leading social change, there is no such thing as “too young.”

As a WE Ambassador, Hannah is proud to have shared the story of her role model, Malala Yousafzai, with WE Day audiences across North America. She has also spoken on the need for inclusivity and encouraged thousands of students to stand up to bullying and build kinder school communities. In 2014, she joined Spencer West as a feature speaker on the WE Create Change Tour, visiting schools across Canada to celebrate the powerful change being made by students in their communities and around the world. With a keen interest in sustainable development, Hannah recently travelled to Kenya with ME to WE, where she experienced first-hand the transformative impact of WE Villages development programming.

Hannah lends her voice to a number of local and global issues and organizations. She spearheaded a Shoreline Cleanup in her community and became a World Wildlife Federation Earth Hour Team Captain. In December 2015, she launched #FeedTO, a day of distributing hot meals to the homeless in Toronto’s downtown core. She has also been an ambassador for the anti-bullying organization ByStander Revolution and the Michael Pinball Clemons Foundation, which works to empower youth at home and around the globe. In her school community, Hannah plays an active role on student council and school clubs, and is a recipient of the Student Success Award from the York Region District School Board.
