As a politician who works closely with people, I saw many forms of inequalities, including inequality to exercise their freedom and to access fair rules, regulations, and opportunities. I wanted to promote civic education, especially the principles and values of democracy which would allow the youth to know their rights and duties as citizens. I experienced that freedom is still out of sight of youth in suburb areas. To make the youth realize that freedom is their basic rights, I partnered with FNF to introduce Sim Democracy as a democratic learning instrument that allows the youth to learn and to reflect on democratic values and principles such as freedom, equality, rule of law and democratic mechanisms such as election and checks and balances.
