Teen Activist Wins Glamour Mag Award

Readers' Choice award goes to HIV/AIDS activist Kendall Ciesemier

Almost two years ago, we featured Kendall Ciesemier as one of two U.S. teen activists who had raised millions of dollars in their quests to join the fight against HIV/AIDS and poverty in Africa.

Ciesemier's work had caught the eye of Oprah Winfrey and Bill Clinton, and now it's got the attention of the readers of Glamour magazine, who voted Ciesemier their Readers' Choice winner in the publication's annual Women of Year issue. The brief article notes that Kendall's organization, Kids Caring 4 Kids, has raised over $840,000, funding a girls' dormitory in Kenya and meals for AIDS patients and orphans in Zambia. She has a goal of raising $1 million before she heads to college next fall.
