The Global Young Leaders Conference is an exciting part of my future. This prestigious conference is a unique leadership development program that brings together outstanding young people from around the world to build critical leadership skills.
The Global Young Leaders Conference (GYLC) provides high-achieving students with a greater understanding of their roles as global ambassadors, as they analyze concepts surrounding communications, diplomacy, law, human rights, peace, security, economics and the role of the United Nations. GYLC was designed to educate, inspire and motivate students by giving us the opportunity to explore cultural differences firsthand, absorb diplomatic skills daily, build confidence and enhance decision-making skills.
This initiative extends so many opportunities for developing myself into a better person, and I am thrilled at the prospect of attending this program. However I am also deeply interested in the opportunity to adapt and survive in a foreign country for a ten day period, albeit under controlled conditions. It is a test of independence and principles and a challenge I await with open arms.
During the U.S. conference I will attend, the delegation will travel from the historic capital of the United States, Washington D.C. and venture to New York City to participate in a Global Summit Simulation at the United Nations Headquarters. Along the way, we will interact with officials from various embassies and attend leadership seminars. For a break from the hard work, we will also visit memorials, museums and cultural icons in Washington D.C. and New York City.
Post more again soon!
