Video of the Week: Awesome Annie from Kenya

Credit: GPE/Reading Changed My Life

My name is Anne, but all the insiders call me “Annie.” I made this simple video. I want to thank the competition organizers for this contest. So many people coming out to say how the simple act of reading (that a lot of us don’t even notice) has impacted us, is just amazing to me. I hope you guys never ever stop in your venture to educate the world. You have at least one fan behind you.

This video was submitted by Annie from Kenya to the Reading Changed My Life Contest. View all photos and videos submitted to the Reading Changed My Life Photo and Video Contest. Also see Annie’s Facebook post.
