Finding Your Voice

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to not be able to communicate, to have to listen to everything you’re told, to have no rights or freedoms? Well, some people go through that and sometimes even worse. It is our job to change it, to make a difference. It’s time to lead as young people and make a difference.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states in articles 12-14:

12. Respect for children’s views.Children have the right to give their opinions freely on issues that affect them. Adults should listen and take children seriously.

13. Sharing thoughts freely. Children have the right to share freely with others what they learn, think and feel, by talking, drawing, writing or in any other way unless it harms other people.

14. Freedom of thought and religion. Children can choose their own thoughts, opinions and religion, but this should not stop other people from enjoying their rights. Parents can guide children so that as they grow up, they learn to properly use this right.
