Why Amy Agnew is a Global Citizen

I’m a global citizen because I think that we all have a responsibility to take advantage of this precious time on earth to try and make it a bit better for everyone. People before us have worked hard so that people like me can enjoy the rights and privileges that we do, and I would like to continue that work. I think this planet is pretty awesome and worth protecting, and that it’s perfectly possible for everyone in the world to have happy lives with everything they need. So let’s do it!
