"I am above all humbled to know I belong to such an extraordinary generation."
This week, the Disney Channel announced that after three seasons, "Girl Meets World" would be coming to an end.
The "Boy Meets World" spin-off lasted 70 episodes, following the story of Riley Matthews (played by Rowan Blanchard), the daughter of Cory and Topanga Matthews (played by Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, respectively), who were the stars of "Boy Meets World," which ran from 1993 to 2000 on ABC.
Blanchard, 15, has made her share of news for what she's done offscreen — and for good reason.
In January 2016, Blanchard shared a powerful essay about how she "quit apologizing for existing" at Rookie magazine. In the summer of 2015, she shared a post on the importance of intersectional feminism on her Tumblr page. She's also spoken out on gender equality at the United Nations and eschewed social expectations when she came out publicly as queer.
