" I am always interested in social work as it is a profession that historically produces agents of change who are not afraid to challenge antiquated policies, fight for social justice, and make the world a better place. The purpose of Youth for Human Rights International is to teach youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspire them to become valuable advocates for tolerance and peace. Its importance is that it tells people that one cannot call a society a good and a just society until all its citizens enjoy these human rights. "
