Welcome to the Change Generation!

My name is Kelly Lovell and I founded this platform to create a community that represents the true voice of today’s young leaders.

For the past seven years, I have dedicated my life to creating opportunities for YOUth to thrive. I truly believe that youth are not just the leaders of tomorrow, but are the leaders of today. As such, I believe that young voices should be a major part of our decision making processes. As a Youth Mobilizer, entrepreneur, and speaker, I have represented the voice of youth on global leadership platforms, met with business leaders and executives, and shared discussions with powerful global leaders and royalty.

Starting as a passionate teen, I have since become a 16-time award-winning thought leader, 3-time TEDx speaker, and currently serve as the CEO of Lovell Corporation and My Effect Inc. Through my work, I am determined to ensure that today’s young leaders have the tools necessary to achieve success and change the world.

I founded The Change GenerationTM with a mission to redefine the narrative of today’s youth and create a community of like-minded peers that embody the true passion and impact of our generation. Through my journey as a young leader, I have encountered many different challenges and youth stereotypes. The narratives that others have used to define us – digital natives, the ‘me’ generation, entitled, needy – have a created a generation of young people without a true definition.

The young professionals and aspiring leaders I know, however, are passionate, driven, and committed to making the world a better place. From finding an affordable cure for malaria and revolutionizing the way the visually impaired navigate their daily lives, to starting a nonprofit as young as 6 years old to raise money for a neighbour, we are taking a stand and making a difference. This drive to change the world – to seek solutions for global challenges that affect us all – and to pave our own path in life is a defining characteristic of our generation. In essence, we are a generation defined by our dedication to each other and a better future; or, as I have come to believe, we are a #ChangeGen 💪

There are over 1.8 billion young people in the world – each of us with our own passions and ambitions for the future. I founded The Change Generation to unite us and provide a platform to celebrate the role our generation has in shaping the future.

I invite you to join our network of ChangeLeaders® – young leaders, entrepreneurs, and activists – on a journey to pursue our passions and make a meaningful difference in the world.
