I am going to mark this day as one of the most memorable meetings I have ever attended. It was my pleasure and honour to participate in this timely and important occasion.
The theme was Violence against Girls. We know that we are the victims of violence the most, but that doesn’t mean that I cannot fight for Children’s Rights. I was really honoured to meet Mrs. Hillary Clinton and Minister Amorim, and not forgetting the Minister from the Netherlands, Mr./Sir Maxime Verhagen (see Mayra and me on the picture with Mr. Verhagen… and Leggy!)
I hope that whatever I said or we said, that action should be taken was taken seriously, because I believe in acting when I see all the problems around me. Not forgetting all the people present at the side event and hope the best for all the children who are suffering.
