Yasmine was invited to join the UN's International Youth Day conference, where she participated in the Youth-led Peacebuilding and Violence Prevention panel.
The panel and gathering provided a much-needed space for young people to have their voices and creative peacemaking solutions heard.
“There were about 200 people in the room. It was so humbling and amazing to see so many youth from all over the world and the United States together in one place and listening so attentively. It was an honor to be in the presence of some of our prestigious world leaders, such as ambassadors from countries such as Senegal, Colombia and Norway. They all gave addresses to the youth saying that they are counting on us and our creative ideas to save our world and make it a better, safer place.”
