I feel that to have a better knowledge of life, you need an education that will provide you with the resources you need. That's why it's important for future generations to know the facts of having a healthy sex life and protecting yourself from HIV, STIs, and pregnancy.

Oscar, 16, works with Advocates for Youth and the Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign of North Carolina (APPCNC) as a member of the North Carolina Teen Health Now Council.

I am one of the newest members of the North Carolina Teen Health Now Council. I can't wait to start this new experience and get more involved in activism in the youth sexual health and rights movement. The reason why this work motivates me is because I know that this program helps so many people out there to improve the lives of teens and it spreads knowledge, one of the key elements of life. I feel that to have a better knowledge of life, you need an education that will provide you with the resources you need.

That's why it's important for future generations to know the facts of having a healthy sex life and protecting yourself from HIV, STIs, and pregnancy. The youth of this world need to know consequences and dangers that are out there. So it's also important for young people to advocate for sexual health and rights because this helps them get the education they need, allowing them to educate others while also allowing them to use that education to better their lives.
