I’m a 19-year-old, South African student at UBC, advocating for the important role that education plays in our lives, and against the fact that post-secondary education is seen as a "privilege", granted only to a few.

Education is recognized as a human right in a number of international practices, including the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), which recognizes that “higher education shall be made equally accessible to all…  and in particular by the progressive introduction of free education”. The ICESCR is a document, adopted by the UN General Assembly to promote the universal respect for human rights and freedoms, which Canada signed and ratified in January 1976.

Post-Secondary Education should not discriminate against students from different national, financial, and social backgrounds.
