I will do my best as a member of the National Assembly so that no more students will shed tears due to school violence."

Lauren Yehwa Seo, a second-year student at SDC International School Academy, presented under the title of “Don’t leave me alone.” 

Lauren Yehwa Seo announced, "To solve the problems of school violence: • Increase education time for students with broken personalities to cultivate consideration and respect of others, positive words, and values • Effective education for offenders of school violence • cooperate with private organizations such as the Blue Tree Foundation and expand external counseling facilities. 

Lauren Yehwa Seo, a student, said, “Fleas have been famous since ancient times as insects that can jump over 100 times their own body height. However, if the fleas are confined in a glass bottle that is only half as high as they can jump, the fleas will jump several times, and thereafter, even when the bottle cap is removed, they are unable to escape. The youth in Korea have the ability to unleash infinite possibilities beyond their abilities. However, like fleas in a glass bottle, the entire society, not just the school, must look back to see if the youth are unable to grow up because they are trapped in a glass bottle called school violence that goes beyond suicide attempts and even kills other students.”

Lauren Yehwa Seo continued, “We need to put our last hope in society and grab the hands of the victims who are reaching out for help. There will come a day when we won’t have to. The day will come when the word “school violence” will disappear from our society, and students who have been victims of school violence will be able to have a bright smile on their face. 

Manuscripts written by students were submitted on-site and will undergo rigorous screening.  More than 90 awards, including the National Assembly Speaker Award, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education Award, the National Assembly Education Chairperson Award, the National Assembly Award, 17 Provincial and Provincial Education Superintendents Award, the Seoul Mayor’s Award, and the Seoul Mayor’s Awards will be given.
