Sanford, North Carolina – “Vote for Hanna to be president,” gushes a 6-year-old girl in an emotional video recorded by her parents. A few days before the elections, Hanna Yow, from a Mexican-American family, assures that if she were president she would treat everyone “fairly”, regardless of origin or skin color.
The electoral environment has traveled the homes of millions of families in the United States, while parents talk about candidates, proposals, and promises to be fulfilled, the little ones in the house listen carefully, and on occasions, intervene to show their points of view. In Sanford, North Carolina, a little girl surprised her parents with an important thought.
The video of about three minutes begins with little Hanna saying that she would change the country by “doing something very simple.”
“There is a rule that the president should know: people should be treated fairly. It doesn’t matter if they are older, or younger. It doesn’t matter what the color of their skin, or their eyes, are sometimes treated badly.” little Hanna shared.
Excited, and with little security seen at such a young age, Hanna also added that being president would help preserve nature.
“I want to make some changes, like stop cutting the trees, because they give us oxygen,” said the girl.
Other ideas such as protecting minors from crime, and encouraging the adoption of homeless children, were some of the requests made by little Hanna.
“I don’t want to be treated badly, and that’s why I want to be president”
Janelly Yow, originally from Guerrero, Mexico, shared with Univision 40 the emotional video of her daughter, and also confessed her pride at seeing Hanna’s desire to help humanity.
“One day she told me that she wanted to be president, when I asked her she told me: ‘You know mom, a lot of people have been mistreated, people the color of your skin.’ Then he put his hands on my face and said: ‘I don’t want Nobody treats you badly and that’s why I want to be the next president, ‘” said the Hispanic mother.
Little Hanna, who is barely in her first grade of primary school, assures that kindness and equality would be the necessary resources to “change the world.”
“I made the decision to be president because some people have been treated unfairly,” the 6-year-old girl said repeatedly.
A few days before the elections on November 3, and amid the innocent reflection made by her daughter, Janelly sends a message to the President of the United States.
“It would be good if the leader of the United States is a president for all. This country is made of immigrants,” concluded the Hispanic mother.
