It's Your Right: Salisa on the Right to a Language

Nov 17, 2015, 09:45 AM

Salisa comes from Thailand, and enjoys dancing and Thai boxing, the native sport of Thailand. She attends Ballymakenny College in Drogheda, where she hopes she will be able to continue to box. She speaks Thai mostly to her mother, and speaks English with her father. Thai is very important to her as she feels it is a big part of who she is, but she also thinks that everyone should have the right to speak whatever language they wish.
