Fatima Aliyu Gebi, 17, from Nigeria, speaks about the plight and plea of the Northern Nigeria girl. In a powerful narration of the kidnaping of more than 200 Northern Nigeria girls in their school in 2014, Fatima highlighted how insecurity, poverty and misconceptions have made girl child education a right under attack in some areas. She expressed her hope to see an Africa where girls are allowed to dream and realize their rights.
