Lilia Romadan shared her impressions of the Assembly.
- I am very glad to be blessed to take part in the UN Youth assembly and represent my Motherland there. The Youth Assembly offers an opportunity to exchange one?s ideas with the participants from other countries, gain new experience in the UN, the main centre of global diplomacy, complement and deepen one?s knowledge in global politics and economics. The highly topical program with workshops, plenary sessions and youth project presentations focused on pointed issues connected with women leadership, help to third world nations. I was lucky to report and present my suggestions on the struggle against food problem and hunger. A friendly atmosphere of the event should be surely noted. Over 600 young leaders came from across the globe with a cherished desire to change the world to the best and share their ideas. I am happy to get new knowledge and skills I will use in my diplomatic career and make new friends in many countries.
