Attending One Young World is remarkably amazing; it has been among the best moments of my life. Without a doubt, one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects was becoming a Delegate Speaker.
Unlike many conferences, One Young World gives young people the opportunity to speak on stage alongside world leaders such as former United Nations Secretary General - Kofi Annan, former US President - Bill Clinton, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate - Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Professor Muhammed Yunus. I was lucky enough to speak alongside these prominent world leaders.

Having advocated for several key issues close to heart for more than six years, I was able to speak at two One Young World Summits. In 2012 and 2015, I had the opportunity to address 1,300 young delegates and world leaders from 196 countries on the most pressing issues our world is facing: human rights, refugee plights, and the current migration crisis. In doing so, it helped me excel my advocacy, reach out to a wider audience, share the work I am doing, and motivate follow delegates and those who follow the event through the media.
One Young World has an amazing team that is ready to assist you in shaping and elevating the tone of your speech. They spend time preparing you to speak on a world-class stage.
If you have a cause that you are passionately working on, and you believe it is for the greater good of humanity, then you must apply to become a Delegate Speaker.
