UN Conference on Human Rights

Last December, several of my peers and myself participated in a
three-day conference on human rights at the United Nations. It was an
incredibly valuable experience. We got to listen to and learn from
students from across the tri-state area, as well as Mexico, Canada,
and France. It is so important to get involved in these types of
opportunities because it puts us on the path to becoming future world
leaders. If we start thinking about our generation’s problems now, we
will be better prepared to deal with them in the future.
It was also a great experience because I got to meet people from so
many different countries and work with them to achieve a common goal
(making our human rights campaign proposals). It was really
interesting to see human rights not only from an exclusively American
prospective. We also all had very different backgrounds in the area of
human rights; some people had done many projects and some had barely
learned about them. Overall, the experience was very meaningful.
