Palm trees against cloudy sky
I want to be president

“My parents don’t let me go to school, just because I am a girl,” says Elizabeth, 17, a Child Rights Ambassador for the World’s Children’s Prize.

“When I needed anything when I was young, my brother’s needs always came first. That’s why I want to study, so that one day I can become the president of our country and change the situation for girls and women. And that’s why I want to be an ambassador for girls’ rights.”
