Vision Statement: The work of the United Nations is more important now than ever and youth engagement is key to ensuring we achieve the ambitious goals set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Through supporting the mission of the United Nations Association of the National Capital Area (UNA-NCA), my vision is to chart a path for further engagement with students and young professionals in the National Capital Area. I hope to strengthen our connections with the United Nations Association campus chapters and ensure a smooth transition between campus and community chapters as students graduate. I believe it is critical to engage students and young professionals as they bring unique perspectives and enthusiasm on global issues. As a Director at Large, I will actively support UNA-NCA’s advocacy work and programming to ensure our impact as an organization continues to grow. By building support through local organizations and key decision-making bodies at the local and national level, we can broaden our reach on the critical issues facing the United States and the global community.
