President, Washington International School
This year will be my second organizing the GIN Conference, and I've enjoyed the experience tremendously/ I think the conference is a superb platform for students to meet and discuss current global issues and the measures undertaken by governments, NGOs and other groups to combat them. I truly believe that the conference is crucial in developing the student's roles as a global citizen and for cultivating the next generation of strong leaders, with a passion for global and domestic affairs, empathy and understanding , and overall skills that'll grow and prosper.
