Peace Awards 2016

Photo detail

Kenzie Hines, senior, James Madison High School “I'm the president of Amnesty International and Girls Learn International at my school. Mostly through Amnesty, we try to involve the student population in mostly Socratic discussions about tolerance, things that are happening around the world. And since we live in such a diverse area, how we affect that, how we feel about it because in this bubble nothing really seems real. So it's a lot of trying to educate the student population, my friends and people around me on how different the world is and how to accept that. Education breeds tolerance. When I was an underclassman, I knew a bunch of seniors who were really involved in Amnesty and the Amnesty club at my school is extremely welcoming, we do a lot of events that are a lot of fun and I wanted to be a part of that, so now I lead it.”

This is really great that you are creating the events at this age and you really deserve to get this award. I have read the information about this dream awards in best writing service reviews which declared that these are the best way to encourage the young people by giving the awards.
