This week, in my school work, I have been learning about freedom of expression. We are working through a book by UNICEF, it’s about the rights of children all around the world. All children should have the right to freedom of expression.
WHAT IS FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION?
I think that it’s where people can express themselves honestly, about what they think, feel, want, find important or love without being influenced, stopped or restricted by others.
WHY DO CHILDREN NEED TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES?
I think we need to express ourselves, because we have valuable things to say. Children around this world live through war, some kid’s lives are lived in poverty, others suffer loss of family. Because they have experienced the reality of pain and hardship, it makes them want to help to change the situation. Children are passionate. Their desire is to make other people aware so they can help too.
CHILDREN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
I decided to express myself by making a film about something I’m passionate about.
