For anyone who knows me, you know that I have a very special place in my heart and life for UNICEF. I was fortunate to once again be able to attend the UNICEF USA Student Summit, Annual Meeting and serve as state leader once again for Advocacy Day. This year, not only did we as a group have an incredible turn out for Advocacy Day, but Michigan had a record number of meetings. We met with Senator Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow’s Office along with Representatives Levin, Dingell, Walberg, Slotkin, and left UNICEF materials with Representative Stevens and Lawrence’s offices.
I feel so incredibly honored to be a part of an organization that has taken me in and given me a third family. One that I wouldn’t have if my mom had not made the decision to leave everything to ensure that I would have a better life. My entire life, and accomplishments until now are all due to the people that I have met because of UNICEF’s work 21 years ago.
