Greta Thunberg became “Person of the Year” according to the magazine “Time”

NEW YORK – The Final issue of Time magazine came out with a portrait of Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg. Its decision in the magazine commented that this is “normal teenage girl who dared to speak truth to power and became a symbol of a generation.”

In the retail sale, the magazine has not yet arrived. It should be in newsagents in the evening on East coast time the USA.

A schoolgirl from Sweden, known for her active position in the fight against climate change, bypassed venerable politicians. She’s the youngest person to ever make the cover of the final issue.

Exactly a year ago, Greta started the action “Friday for the future” – instead of school lessons, every Friday came to the Swedish Parliament with posters in defense of the environment. Teenagers in other countries picked up the idea.

“Not a politician, not a scientist, not a billionaire, not a pop star,” Time notes, ” an ordinary teenage girl who plucked up the courage to tell the truth to the authorities and became a symbol of a generation.”

An ordinary girl who wants to change the world.
