Global Young Leaders Conference?Watch
i got a letter said that im nominated for this conference which would be held in US or Europe in this summer.
from the letters and materials they sent me, it looks like it really worths going. but it costs abt 2000 dollars.
so want to know opinions from ppl who knows abt this or hv been to one before.
pm me if you need more information.
but i must say
i had a time of my life.
it's interesting for those who wants to see us and it's stand on politics. hahaa.
yea. pm me. (=
Its also a really good thing to put on your cv and application forms for jobs as its a great example of teamwork! You take part in 3 simulations which are fun. Though some of the talks you're taken to are kind of boring and some people take to falling asleep! But thats more to do with some of the speakers than the content, when we went to the US State Department the talk we had from the Chief of Staff was brilliant. Also you're always on the go and by the end you're really tired (so you can kind of understand the falling asleep when you have a talk by a guy from the IMF who can't do speeches to save his life!). But its just such a great experience so if you get the money or you're parents agree to pay then go for it!!!!
is that the type of representative we want being sent to these conferences?
i believe that a short essay from all people who wanted to be involved should have been used. that would have given a much better opportunity for previously "unseen" students to get a chance in life.
Just because the selected are 'pretty' or 'loud' or 'seen' doesn't mean that people who haven't 'put them selfs out there' don't want an opportunity to do something great in life.
equal opportunities... i wish there was someone who runs the conference to see this and how unprofessionally my college has gone about this.
but then again, I'm just one boy, a mere speck on the windshield who hasn't got any authority or momentum to change anything...
