Please, Georgia Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson, you as well Congressman Rick Allen, as a student who works tirelessly to educate myself over the Internet and continuously tries to connect our ever-growing world, I’m begging you as a representative of the people of Georgia, to save net neutrality.
Over the Internet, I have taught myself Calculus, become fluent in three languages (French, Chinese, and Korean), and studied to excel in rigorous courses and tests such as AP chem and the SAT, all at the age of 15.
I also enjoy watching world history and science videos on YouTube, and even use the Internet as a way to connect with my friends across the globe.
Without net neutrality, I don’t know if I could do half of that – not to mention the countless peers at my school whose families are struggling financially but who can use the Internet as a way to better themselves and get ahead, due to the Internet’s open nature.
I don’t want the Internet to become a place where those who can afford it have all the access and those who can’t, don’t.
I know my young opinion might not mean much, but I hope the idea of net neutrality does.
