My name is Amoak Derrick a finalist of the 2017 SDGs Youth Essay Competition.I heard of the competition from a friend who works with an NGO I am affiliated with called Make a Difference Ghana, based in Tamale. I wanted to share with the world my contribution to elevating the living standards of children in society. I recognized the essay competition as an opportunity to do so.
The experience was amazing! I had the opportunity of learning and meeting other youth working on the SDGs in their own way. I have benefited a lot from it. First, being recognized and serving as a point of reference in my school, a mentor and a happy member of Make a Difference Ghana Youth Charity Network.
Above all, it has boosted my morale to want to do more to make the world a better place.
