“The Hidden Voices project allowed these . . . young people to explore their ideas, beliefs and perspectives . . . They had never been asked their opinion and didn't believe that people wanted to hear what they thought . . . . Hidden Voices recognized their courage to stand up for what they believed; it showed them that you can challenge and question constructively by affirming your place as part of a dialogue. Most of all, I think Hidden Voices showed them that their voices mattered.”
