AMBITION

: To make the world a better place! I want to live in a world where girls, boys, men and women live in a fair and equitable world, free from things like gender-based violence and discrimination; and where all people have equal opportunities. And that is why I am a very strong advocate for gender equity (which encompasses both women’s and men’s issues).
