Kareem El-Ansary is the 2019 Youth Representative to the United Nations. UN Youth volunteer, Nick Mezo, sat down with him to chat about the role and the year ahead.
In partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Youth Representative travels Australia consulting with young people on a National Listening Tour before representing us at the United Nations General Assembly.
“The best part of my job has been meeting thousands of young Australians from different backgrounds, learning about their lives, and hearing their perspectives. It’s been truly incredible.” – Amos Washington, the 2018 Youth Rep.
The Youth Rep program is one of UN Youth Australia’s most exciting opportunities – and we want you to be a part of it. If you’re between 18 and 25 and passionate about representing young Australians, we want you to apply.
