Nearly a quarter of Kuwait’s entire population is under the age of 14 and yet with the exception of school assemblies, we never hear their voices. During Ramadan, Kuwait Times likes to publish a special series that engages with its readership in a more direct, personal way to learn their concerns, issues and viewpoints.

This Ramadan, we will chat with some of our youngest readers about their lives in Kuwait, in an attempt to see the world through their eyes. What do they see for the future of our beautiful country? What would they improve and how would they change it? By listening to their future plans, stories, and experience in Ramadan, we can remind ourselves and hopefully our readers of the ties that bind us all together as a species. These are the voice of Kuwait’s future and we invite them to share their thoughts with us here.

Mohammad Jamal Sabagh is a six-year-old Syrian boy who is crazy about animals. Sabagh told Kuwait Times that he has two names, Mohammad, after Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), and Jamal, after his grandfather.

Kuwait Times: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Mohammad: I want to be a veterinarian to help animals all over the world.

KT: What is your experience in Ramadan?
Mohammad: I love Ramadan because we eat food together at the same table, but after Ramadan we only do that on Fridays.

KT: What is your favorite thing to do in Kuwait?
Mohammad: I love going to the zoo – I would love to become a lion, tiger, cow or sheep.

KT: What do you want to change about Kuwait?
Mohammad: I want to make the sea bigger to reach the sky.

KT: What was the nicest thing you did for someone?
Mohammad: If I see a child, I let it play with my toys.

KT: What would be your ideal allowance? Tell me how would you use it.  
Mohammad: I would give my allowance to poor people who do not have money.
