OAJNU in Salta, Argentina (The Argentine Youth Organization for the United Nations) has been working to mobilize students to have their say in MY World. Here is a message from one of the dedicated student leaders from Santa Teresa School:
Hi! My name is Lucas Cuello, I am 17 years old and the leader of “Changers,” a MY World student group in Salta, Argentina. We are a group of students in the last high school years who are working to collect 7,500 MY World votes in our community before September 1st. We have already raised around 300 votes.
The My World campaign is very important for us because with it, we can change the world and bring more people of our city together to do the same. Personally, projects like this show that we, the young people, can work to create a better and fairer world for everyone, because we are not only the future, we are the right now.
At the moment, our most wonderful experience with this project has been a radio interview on a local radio station. It was an amazing experience and it really helped us. We hope to do it again soon. When it comes to MY World, we must never give up, we always want more.
