But who cares…. 

One thing I can’t stand with our society is that everything is a trend.The Chibok girls are still missing, but all I hear is silence;nothing is being done to bring them back. 

Today, in some parts of the world, Women and young girls are still denied the right and the freedom to get an education. 

The battle isn’t over. Do your part. Spread the word. 

Here is another reason I admire Ms. Alicia keys.

AMWHO conference

The American Mock World Health Organization (AMWHO) is an authentic simulation of the World Health Assembly, the sole decision-making body of the World Health Organization.

Mission Statement:

The purpose for this conference is to establish an environment similar to that of the World Health Assembly, and educate future global health leaders in the proceeding of International health entities.

Delegate roles:

Participants are given the choice of being a WHO Ambassador, NGO Representative, or Media Correspondent. Once given such a role, delegates assume the actions of each, and receive a training session at the beginning of the conference.

Experience:

The AMWHO conference took place in the Roseau hall, in the school of public health at UNC Chapel Hill. The conference counted hundreds of students from around the worlds, all very passionate about global health. During the conference, we were divided amongst our regional block, where we discussed, debated in a diplomatic way and created resolutions about our chosen health problem. Additionally, we networked with AMWHO speakers Mr. Steven Wayling, Ms. Heather Davis and Mr. Mory Pagel who are all very involved in making change in the health field.

Benefits:

 AMWHO is an opportunity that goes beyond classroom teaching. It will give you the opportunity to sharpen your diplomacy skills as well as increase your ability to engage in effective discussion, critical thinking and conflict resolution. Furthermore, this conference will help you build great networking skills.

 For my part, the AMWHO conference was definitely a learning experience; it allowed me to expand my knowledge of global health and public policies. Additionally, my role as an ambassador allowed me to research and identify health problems relevant in my assigned regional block. Moreover, the conference helped me develop leadership, public speaking, and organizational skills.

 Recommendation: 

I firmly recommend this experience to whoever is interested in health education, global issues and global health policies. AMWHO will change the way you view health problems and will help you gain the tools needed to enter into the field of global health.
