Statement of engagement

UNSA Vienna allows me to connect with similar-minded young people and explore where my passions lie through engaging in diverse projects. UNSA seeks to establish a better dialog between those inside and outside of the UN system and I enjoy being a part of such interaction and supporting people with fresh ideas and new mindsets!
