Give us a brief summary of your experience?

UNITE 2030 is a global community of young leaders who are taking action to tackle poverty, inequality, injustice, and climate change by the year 2030. As part of the program, I am able to collaborate with 136 delegates from 61 countries aiming to positively impact 100K people internationally.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This semester as part of the program, I have been participating in seminars and debates with industry professionals to study policymaking through real-world cases. With my group, we're learning about leadership and policymaking, while working on a policy directed to solve inequality in health care at the United Nations level. I am also preparing to present and engage with 100+ strategic partners in the Youth SDG summit that happens alongside the United Nations General Assembly in September.

"As someone who intends on working with UNHCR, this information and opportunity will be fundamental for me to become a great professional in the future."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

With UNITE 2030, I am able to learn from professionals in the field directly on how to create policies that will benefit immigrants and refugees. As someone who intends on working with UNHCR, this information and opportunity will be fundamental for me to become a great professional in the future.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

I received the College of the Liberal Arts Enrichment Funds, which has been able to fund this amazing experience for the semester.
