Read the following passage written by a teen hero: I want to be a vocal advocate for nature. I reject the idea that I am too young to make a difference. I recently helped a group with a river cleanup. I was mortified to see the destruction of animals and plants.

I won't let obstacles detract from my mission. The prefix and root in the word "reject" as they are used in sentence 2 give us an approximate definition.
