After the speech itself, a few students from grades 8, 9 and 10, who had showed particular interest in Miss Kreet’s views on human rights, stayed behind for a round-table discussion. Above all, they wanted to know how law is linked to politics and how international laws need special protection in today’s world. We also touched on the topic of how advanced Estonia is when it comes to handling the personal data of the country’s residents, and how modern their approach to education is.
I personally found it fascinating to hear from such a bright and lively woman who has had varied experiences and who has always kept an open mind towards all the opportunities that life has put in her path. It really made me come to the realization that regardless of the career you chose, you should always remain open to other chances.
