Hi. My name is Maisha and I am a freshman at Baccalaureate School for Global Education. Students were assigned to create a blog about an issue we were passionate about. Child marriage immediately popped into my head. Unfortunately, my mother was married off at 14. She was robbed of her childhood and faced numerous hardships which effected her and my family. This worldwide issue is also quite prevalent—and often even normalized in several societies. However, many people are still unaware or not concerned about it. Consequently, I wanted to spread awareness, support those whose childhoods were taken away from this injustice and prevent any further child marriages.
