1. What inspired you to make the world a better place?
Three years ago, my mum showed me a video of the world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Malala Yousafzai. Malala was talking about the 17 UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development and how it will take all of us to help our planet.
I knew the Global Goals were important for my future and the future of the planet. I wanted to help. I researched the Global Goals, but they were so hard to understand. I thought if kids can’t understand them, then how are we going to be able to help?
I decided that I would write a book and turn the Global Goals into kids speak and add challenges to show how kids can make changes for their community and the planet.
2. What was the most difficult thing to explain in the UN goals?
I had no idea what most of the words meant, I just knew they were important. I had to research each goal, work out what it meant to adults, and then try and make it easier for kids to understand. We also decided to put in a challenge so kids could get straight to work on the goals and make positive changes.
