Be a Voice, Not an Echo

by: Mackenzie A., 9th Grade, Saint Kentigern College, Auckland, New Zealand

When you find your voice, use it to be a force for change.

quote by: Fran Squires, M.Ed., Osprey, Florida

Artist Statement

I want to represent how we sometimes feel forced to suppress our true identities as we fear society's judgment, but all that it takes for us to unlock who we are is the words of one person who is not afraid to speak up. I believe we can all be that person if we abandon our fear and learn how to use our power to change. Once we are able to do this, we can inspire others to do the same and take giant strides toward world peace. As Albert Einstein said, “Be a voice, not an echo."
