International Studies Major, 2018
Balkis Chaabane (right) is a member of the World Youth Alliance (WYA) - an organization started in 1999 that has grown to include tens of thousands of members around the world, all dedicated to the defense of the dignity of the person through education, culture, and advocacy. As a member of WYA, Balkis attended the 2018 International Solidarity Forum (ISF) training session in New York at the United Nations.
“The ISF provided a first-hand on experience, a chance to meet like-minded change makers and WYA members from all over the world. It most importantly allowed us to talk to professionals in the field, people who spent most of their lives working in favor of such solutions and promoting human dignity.”
