According to a recent survey, 90% of young people in Madagascar want to be civil servants.

On December 3, 2013, my high school, Brooklyn International, was invited to attend an event in which UNICEF’s new Goodwill Ambassador was announced. When I entered the UNICEF House, I felt so happy because inside the building there were pictures of children from around the world.
