Today is My Freedom Day, a global student-driven movement started by CNN to raise awareness about modern day slavery. 

We speak with Hong Kong International School students David Kim, Karlijn Van der Loo and Samara Faruqi to learn how they have spread the message and are playing a role in putting an end to the issue.

CNN journalist, Alexandra Field, also joins us to shed a light on the issue, and shares with us stories she has covered about freedom.
