Student Video: The World's Children

Semester at Sea alumnus and founder of Pencils of Promise Adam Braun joined the Fall 2011 Semester at Sea voyage from Morocco to Ghana. He shared many stories and experiences with the shipboard community while he was there, and one in particular struck a chord with Rebecca Dickinson.

Adam asked kids all over the world what one thing they wanted more than anything else in the world. The answers inspired him to start Pencils of Promise. In this video, Rebecca asks children she encounters the same question to see what she can discover for herself.

    I didn’t see a credit for the beautiful song that accompanied the video. What group was that?
