Hello everyone ! I hope you are all doing well ! . I just wanted to tell you all about my experience in planning, coordinating and exposing at the first Workshop on  "Human Rights awareness and cyberbullying prevention"  organised by the Project Friends-Chile, as part of the international campaign of The European Council against Hate speech in all its forms. Since I was asked to give a lecture to Children on these important issues and organise a workshop for them, there were about three weeks in which I had to learn as much as possible about Human Rights and cyberbullying, and also get myself involved with The No Hate Speech Movement". It was a great responsibility: studying every day, looking for the most appropriate time and place to develop the activity, getting the stuff needed, etc. Nevertheless, It was really useful to me, because it made me realize that if you want the things to go well, you have to do your best and dedicate your time and efforts to them.

The day of the activity finally arrived and  it was time to see if our efforts were going to give their results. All the people invited to the workshop arrived: Children, members of the Project Friend-Chile, the special guest, the attorney at law Mr. Samuel Saavedra Avilés, teachers,and parents.    The workshop finished and the children learnt a lot about their rights and said "NO" to the Hate Speech.  

In my view, all the things went as the way we planned. I'm so thankful that I had the opportunity to be part of this activity, because It helped me to get experience in planning something. Moreover, I learnt so much about Human Rights and I was so happy to know that i was teaching Children to be conscious, kinder and supportive to each other.

Equally important to mention, is the fact that I had the opportunity to meet the lawyer, Mr. Samuel Saavedra. We had a great lunch at a restaurant  where we talked about everything ! . Literature, arts, his profession, personal interests, hobbies, etc. He was a very agreeable and interesting person.  It was an incredible way to end the day !

    Dear Nicolas, here are some corrections to your article:
    - I just wanted to tell you all ABOUT my experience IN planning, coordinating and exposing at the first Workshop on…
    - Since I was asked to give a lecture TO children on THESE important issues… (we need the plural form ‘these’)… and ORGANISE a workshop for them.. (we need the infinitive form ‘organise’ because it’s connected to the previous verb: to give a lecture and (to) organise)
    -THERE were about three weeks
    -It was a GREAT responsibility… (we don’t usually say ‘huge responsibility’)
    -EVERY DAY is written separately
    -TO DEVELOP
    -The workshop FINISHED and the children learnt a lot about their rights and SAID ‘NO’ to the Hate Speech…
    -IN my view….
    -It helped me to get experience IN PLANNING SOMETHING…
    -We had a great lunch at a restaurant where… (you don’t need the word ‘IN’)

    I really liked this article and I can see the effort you made to write it. Well done!
