Throughout the weekend, multiple speakers and activities helped define what it truly means to be a global citizen. The experience made Alvarenga realize that, “we are not limited to the citizenship of our country of origin or country of residence. International issues are human issues. And although we may legally have a country we call ours, we are all a part of this world. We are a part of a global community. We must understand what it means to be a global citizen; a person who calls this world their home. Thus, protects it as such. And every human being that is also a part of it."

Nations Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth, and Caryl M Stern, President and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Their passion filled the room with inspiration.
