Teen's Dream

My dream is to have my home country, Moldova, be a more developed nation in terms of its governmental and societal structures. Currently, there is no justice or strong institutions in Moldova, because there is widespread corruption that prevents either of those from existing, as evidenced by the 2016 arrest of the prime minister, Vlad Filat. Filat stole about a billion dollars, which amounts to more than one-eighth of the yearly GDP of Moldova. The 16th Sustainable Development Goal relates to peace, justice, and strong institutions, and the lack of justice or strong institutions could soon lead to a lack of peace, which is why there needs to be some form of change. My dream is to have international aid, not in the form of money or troops, but in the form of advice and support, teaching the country how to get rid of its massive corruption and completely inept judicial system.
