She spoke about how she got started in public service.
The students got to ask questions about the UN’s goals among other topics.
“Even at this age, of 11,12, 13 years-old, looking at what’s going on in that broader international sphere. It’s never too early.” said Ambassador Sison
“I think her story was kind of, like, unique and showed, like, how people can become something great one day.” said student Soumyaa Mathur
