I AM HUMBLE AND PRIVILEGE BEYOND WORDS TO BE SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EDUCATIONAL ENDEAVOR.

I AM A LIBERIAN, A GRADUATING STUDENT OF THE AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL ZION UNIVERSITY MAJORING IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE ADMINISTRATION.

THE LEGAL FRAMEWORK AND RIGHTS TO FREEDOM OF THOUGHT AND OR EXPRESSION IN OUR ORGANIC LAW IS AN INALIENABLE RIGHT (LIBERIA CONST. 1986, ART. 14 & 15) WHICH WAS CODED BY OUR ANCESTORS CENTURIES AGO TO RESTRICT GOVERNMENT FROM ENCROACHING ON HER CITIZEN'S RIGHTS, YET THESE BASIC RIGHTS HAVE BEEN ENCROACHED UPON.

AT THE END OF THIS SESSION, AND HAVING GRADUATED FROM THIS COURSE, I WILL LIKE TO ORGANIZE AN EVENT ON MY CAMPUS TO EDUCATED MY COMRADES WHAT I HAVE LEARNED.

IS A PLEASURE ONCE MORE TO BE A PARTICIPANT.
