Amiran's story

Amiran, 17, advocates for the rights and opportunities of teenagers in Georgia, specifically through the field of science. Through winning the school science fair, he realized that it was important to advocate for the rights of young scientists and to encourage them never to give up. He co-founded the Young Scientists’ Club of Georgia with Giorgi Shelegia, to keep teenagers informed of science competitions and to help them to enter. The pair also engaged with the Georgian Parliament to propose changes to the law, allowing teenagers more freedom and opportunity to fulfill their scientific potential. Amiran believes that he has the means to make the world a better place and this drives him never to give up.
