BTS’ RM encourages everyone to #SpeakYourself and people are now stepping forward to share their stories to the world.

Representing his group BTS, RM stood before prominent figures at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly on September 24, amid the watchful eyes of the world who were witnessing the momentous event via live streams and TV coverage.

In the six-minute long speech, he encouraged people, particularly the youth, to not be afraid to speak up and to let their voices be heard.

“I’m Kim Namjoon and also RM of BTS. I am an idol and I am an artist from a small town in Korea. Like most people, I’ve made many and plenty mistakes in my life. I have many faults and I have many more fears, but I’m gonna embrace myself as hard as I can and I’m starting to love myself gradually, as little by little,” he said, sharing his personal story and inviting other to do the same – to “speak yourself” regardless of “who you are or where you’re from, your skin color, your gender identity”, and to “find your name and find your voice”.
