Which SDG are you most passionate about and why?

“I am the most passionate about SDG 4 Quality Education because I believe that everyone has the potential to succeed if they have enough access to resources, tools, and opportunities. Education should be a right and not a privilege.“

What issues are you most passionate about and what inspires you to take action?

“Access to education for immigrant youth, corruption, and violence against women. I believe the biggest inspiration is the people around me and their own desire to make a difference, no matter how small it is.“
