What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

Tahra Hunter wants the president to understand the harmful effects black stereotypes have on African-American women’s self-esteem.
