Meet Hauwa.

14-year old Hauwa* is from North East Nigeria.

Some girls are not going to school and staying home every day but boys are going every day and have their fees paid for.

That is the difference between boys and girls.

Read Hauwa's poem below.

You will not be a soldier ant.

Where everyone kills soldier ant

Soldier ant is an animal

People kill them

But they are a living thing
