My Voice Can: the voices of young Iraqis

My voice can! No, my voice cannot... Youth around the globe -- and Iraqi youths are no exception -- think day after day about what their voices can do, and what they cannot do. In December and January, UNAMI asked Iraqi youth if they have a voice, if they can express themselves, and what they can do to make their voices heard in their local communities and across the country.

Mandy Dheyab, 23, an Iraqi musician from Baghdad, said that she thinks her voice is important "because it can make a difference" in her society, while Nadia, 21, a student at Baghdad University, thinks that her voice is important because "I'm an Iraqi."
