Children Not Just Like Me
“Children Just Like Me is a book that was published in association with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in 1995, marking its 50th anniversary. It was meant to be a celebration of children around the world, and I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift and read it at the age of 6. The book has impacted my perception of the world and my personal code of ethics immensely, and I still read it today after turning 25. This book tries to convey a wonderful message, one that stresses how similar children from opposite corners of the world are, despite differences in their appearances, cultures, values and standards of living. What I wish to spread today is the importance of not only looking for and noticing similarities, but of accepting diversity and, most importantly, celebrating it”.
