Matthew Green, a student at Wynberg Boys High School, is inspired by his “Transgender friends that have been through hell, people that are not afraid to be themselves, and Logan Paul, the vlogger.”
Asked about his interest in becoming a [email protected] speaker, Matthew responded that he "...wanted to point out the key issue of acceptance facing our community, and how to help those that have been denied."
He added: "I hope to make a positive impact on the community and society itself in order to create an accepting and perfectly understanding world."
