  1. I honestly believe that a twelve year old wrote this “article”. Even if you are new to the English language, all countries capitalize the names of organizations.
    The run-on sentences and the redundancy also made this weak attempt at journalism an embarrassment. Maybe switch to reporting statistics only, because the juvenile writing is unbearable.

  2. Don’t think twice Becca what these people say. There will always be haters. I thought your article was insightful and informative. Keep up the good work
