21 year-old Australian Dana Throssell shares her excitement with Humanitarian Affairs in the lead-up to the International Diplomacy Forum 2019.
"As someone who has studied international affairs for 3 years now, I am extremely excited to go to the International Diplomacy Forum and learn more about the practical and personal side of diplomacy; I believe that understanding more about the changing field of effective diplomacy is imperative to anyone aspiring to work in international affairs.
Alongside hearing and learning from prominent international figures, I am particularly eager to meet other like-minded young leaders who have different backgrounds and perspectives to my own.
I see the International Diplomacy Forum as pivotal in my career development and will equip me with not only practical skills and understanding, but also greater confidence and more extensive and diverse networks."
Ms. Winky Chan, BA Student in English at The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, highlights what motivated her to apply to be a 2019 Delegate of the International Diplomacy Forum held at the United Nations in Bangkok.
"Involving in the field of international affairs and human rights are something what I always dreamed of doing. I have always exposed myself into the corresponding fields as I find it valuable and meaningful in helping those in need in the community as well as changing the world little by little.
I believe attending International Diplomacy Forum, not only will I be inspired and motivated by the eminent world's leaders, but this is also an exceptional opportunity for me to gain a deeper understanding about my future career, and what I have been of particular passionate about.
This is also my immaculate chance to meet new people across the globe and rub shoulders with scholars and professionals who inspire me. It is my great pleasure to be part of International Diplomacy Forum 2019."
The International Diplomacy Forum 2019 will be held at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, on 10 JULY 2019 - 12 JULY 2019.
