Peacemaker

It takes all four kinds of activism to make change, and as a Peacemaker you are following in the sandaled footsteps of Mohatma Ghandi. You believe in peaceful non-violence as the key to creating change. You mentally live in the future, with an eye on how the world can be. Using imagination and creating/inventing new possibilities is automatic and instinctive for you.  You are most likely to be found listening to world music, sipping a chai, and leading your crew in a sit in. Your favourite quote is “Be the change you want to see in the world”.   Mahatma Gandhi led the Indian independence movement in the early 1900s using "Satyagraha," or non-violent civil disobedience. He protested taxation and discrimination of the Indian people by the English colonizers. He called for religious harmony, liberation of women, abolition of caste system, and economic reforms. He was also an advocate of civil rights in South Africa.

Troublemaker

It takes all four kinds of activism to make change, and as a Troublemaker you are following in the boots of Che Guevara. You believe in action as the key to creating change. You mentally live in the now, with an eye on how to change the world today. Using common-sense and coming up with practical solutions is instinctive for you.  You are highly motivated by others around you, and usually open to new ideas.  You are most likely to be found listening to hip hop, sipping a non-branded energy drink, and leading your crew in a street protest. Your favourite quote is “If you tremble with indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine”Ernesto “Che” Guevara, known as El Che or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, doctor, author, intellectual, guerrilla leader, diplomat, and major figure for the Cuban Revolution.  Since his death, you can find his image on everything from t-shirts to coffee mugs, symbolising revolution against the powers of oppression. Time Magazine has named him one of the 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century.

Quiet Acheiver

It takes all four kinds of activism to make change, and as a Quiet Achiever you are following in the slippered footsteps of Aung San Suu Kyi. You believe in democracy as the key to creating change. You mentally live in the future with an eye on how the world can be. Using imagination and creating/inventing new possibilities is automatic and instinctive for you. You are highly self-motivated and don’t rely much on others.   You are most likely to be found listening to folk music, sipping a green tea, and leading your crew in writing letters to parliament. Your favourite quote is “The democracy process provides for political and social change without violence.” Aung San Suu Kyi is a Burmese politician and a former General Secretary of the National League for Democracy. In the 1990 general election, many believe she was elected Prime Minster of Burma, however she had been placed under house arrest before the elections by the Burmese government.  Despite international pressure on the Burmese government, she has remained under house arrest for almost 14 of the past 20 years.  She is the recipient of a number of international prizes for her courage and dedication to her country, including the Noble Peace Prize (1991).  

Celebrity Endorser

It takes all four kinds of activism to make change, and as a Celebrity Endorser you are following in the stilettoed footsteps of Angelina Jolie. You believe in mass media as the key to creating change. You mentally live in the now, with an eye on how to change the world today. Using common-sense and coming up with practical solutions is instinctive for you.  You are highly motivated by others around you, and usually open to new ideas.  You are most likely to be found listening to music you recorded as guest singer with your friend’s band, sipping a rare Amazonian fruit juice, and leading your crew in a documentary of your travels in Africa. Your favourite quote is “We cannot close ourselves off to information and ignore the fact that millions of people out there are suffering”.   Angelina Jolie is best known for her stellar film career, and for being married to super hunk Brad Pitt.  She has used her celebrity status to promote humanitarian causes, and is noted for her work with refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).  She has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 20 countries.  Reportedly, she insists on the same living conditions as other field staff and doesn’t mind getting her designer clothes dirty.
