When I was 2, I wanted to be a singer. No one wants to be a slave. Today is the start of #nomoretraffik week. We are using the opportunity to ask the Nigerian Government to #BringBackOurGirls. What did you dream of being when you grew up?

MISSING GIRLS OF MOLDOVA

Because a little girl, once she’s beat, won’t fight back. http://vimeo.com/21076799 Bright spark: people like those who run Stella’s House. They give us hope.
