Violence against Children in the Spotlight at Caribbean Meeting: Meet Craig
There are many ways to describe the experience that I have been given the opportunity to witness. Originally I had the standard expectation of a conference, a long and monotonous ceremony where I would be lectured and put to sleep with no chance to offer input and everything be laid out in front of me. It was quite the opposite upon my arrival I have been met with nothing but participation and enthusiasm from both my fellow juices of our creative young minds for the betterment of children around the world and for this I express a million thanks for this marvellous and creative opportunity.
