Age 14, Northern Ireland
When I heard about the Send My Friend to School campaign, I was shocked to discover that 262 million children worldwide don’t receive an education. I wanted to take action, so my friend and I applied to take part in the campaign.
It was a tough process, but we were selected. We went to London to lobby MPs to support the campaign, including Harriet Baldwin, the Minister of State for the Department of International Development.
Since then, I’ve campaigned in local schools to raise awareness of the issue. We have to take action as a community to end this injustice.
