Havana Chapman-Edwards is part of Teen Vogue’s 21 Under 21 class of 2018, which spotlights extraordinary young women, girls, and femmes making waves in their industries or passions of choice.

“A girl with a book is a girl that is unstoppable.” If you’re wracking your brain to remember where you heard that quote, you can stop: It came straight from the mouth of seven-year-old Havana Chapman-Edwards.

Havana first made headlines in March, as one of the youngest members of the nationwide cohort of students asking for gun control change. Dressed in an orange astronaut suit, Havana was the only student at her Alexandria, Virginia, elementary school to join the National School Walkout on April 20, and an image of her sitting alone that day quickly caught people’s attention on social media. "I want to help the big kids and adults and show them I support them as much as I can until I am old enough to vote," Havana told Teen Vogue at the time.
