Tena Koutou from New Zealand. My name is Brittany Trilford. I am 17-years-old, I am a child. Today, in this moment, I am all children, your children, the world’s three billion children. Think of me as half the world.
I stand here with fire in my heart. I’m confused and angry at the state of the world and I want us to work together now to change this. We are here today to solve the problems that we have caused as a collective, to ensure that we have a future.
