Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” But this often makes me question somehow whether age is just a number when it comes to bring those changes and make this world a better place. May be yes as a 17-year-old Delhi based girl, Kaanchi Chopra is shattering all the stereotypes of being an average teenager. While most people are obsessing about their skin color and body weight, she's using her stack of crayons to stand against the social stigma that plague a society.
In 2015, she decided to amalgamate her artistic skills with activism in order to bring social good, which she often call as "ARTIVISM". She started an art blog to raise consciousness among masses about the dreadful and terrible issues still faced by Indians, including domestic violence, color discrimination, gender inequality, poverty, acid attacks, and body shaming. As it is said, "good work never go futile", her blog posts received more than 7000 views from more than 55 countries and organisations such as Stop Acid Attacks, Make Love Not Scars and Sheroes Hangout appreciated her work as well.
To honor her humanitarian artwork, we've compiled some of her powerful illustrations with excerpts from each blog. Check them out and spread her message as much as possible!
