Happy Independence Day! At Literacy Council of Northern Virginia, it is a day we celebrate freedom, history, and individuality with our community. Celenia’s essay reflects on how education is an integral part for her – not only to grow without fear, but more importantly, be able to “choose the future of the country”.
Celebrate United States’ Independence with her powerful words:
“Education is important for me because it helps me to make a better future. Voting in elections is important because we can choose the future of the country. Become a citizen to be able to speak or vote without fear of anything. Grow in a country that is not yours [and] feeling safe and supported [from] racist people. [I] want to have the same respect to people of different color or race.”
