We have this amazing group in school called "The Peace & Social Justice Group". I was only 12 when I first joined and I didn't really understand what was going on. As I like to say , I was living in my own little bubble. But then one day this incredible thing happened. My bubble burst. I realised that I have to share this world that I live in. We all have to work together to keep it in good shape. And quite frankly we aren't all doing such a good job. Our planet is getting warmer and damaging our environment becasue we are burning fossil fuels like there is no tomorrow. . . . .
And of course I discovered that our world isn't fair. Ever hear of a thing called 80/20 ? This is one of the things I learnt in school. And once you know something , you can't unknow it. 20% of the world have 80% of the worlds wealth. How is that fair , how is that equal ? This has to change.
As a person I changed when I had the most amazing opportunity to go to Kenya. I spent to weeks there. I went to school with girls just like me. I took part in MDG disscussions and I learnt so much. I visited women in the slums who are suffering with HIV , such amazing women. My heros. I want to go back some day soon.
