Statement of engagement

UNSA Vienna provides a wonderful opportunity to anyone wanting to gain practical experience in areas of human rights concerns that are not as commonly addressed within the mainstream, particularly in the realm of controversial topics such as gender-based violence and climate change-induced migration. I'm truly inspired by their approach towards involving future generations and youth communities in their activities, and hope to bring value to UNSA operations through my experiences as an international student, as well as in my academic and professional experience in a global South context.
