"My experience at the Youth Assembly at the United Nations started on 2016 when I participated at the Winter Assembly. For me that was an amazing experience. Having the chance to be at the UN HQ, being able to listen and learn from role models for youth and other young leaders, made me feel how important the youth is to achieve sustainable development. I remember Mr. Ahmad Alhendawi telling us that we were the first generation that could eradicate poverty but the last one that can stop climate change, that statement just filled my soul with the desire to go beyond, double my actions in my community and empower local youth so they are not left behind in this process. On 2017 I was a Delegate for the winter conference as well and it was amazing to see some friends back and even join the panel with UN Women as a former Women Champion for Empower Women Movement for Women Economic Empowerment for UN Women. I have grow a lot and for sure this space is a relevant space for global youth."
