The shooting that Chadwick survived, in Parkland, Florida, has inspired a new generation of teen activists, and she is now one of the most vocal. Prior to this moment, she was already engaged with social justice issues, saying, “I've been an advocate for a lot of things like gun control, I'm pro-choice, and I fight for LGBTQ+ rights.”

Chadwick has been speaking out since the #NeverAgain movement started, helping plan the March for Our Lives, and is already confident that young people are making an impact. “The reality is that our generation is the next voting generation,” she tells Teen Vogue. “We're activating this impact that's about to just explode in the old politicians' faces.”
