Juliette Speaks – at Boston U.


Juliette West, a freshman in CAS, is an avid animal activist and has been since age nine. After contributing to a campaign to rescue an elephant from a zoo, she was approached by a director and asked to travel to Thailand and film a documentary about an elephant sanctuary. At age fourteen, Juliette discovered her passion. After the filmHow I Became An Elephant, was released, she was inspired to take action and started an organization called JulietteSpeaks. Not only does her organization promote animal rights, but it also encourages youth leadership. After creating a highly successful organization at a young age, Juliette wanted to help other young activists take the first step to creating their own projects and standing up for what they believe in.
