Youth Leadership Summit Day 1

Today, was day one of the Youth Leadership Summit through Sister Cities International.  This conference attracts and immerses students in global issues and allows them to act as delegates in order to debate, communicate, and perpend real- world issues.  It was exciting to meet high school students from around San Antonio, California, Arizona, and many other places.  The country I’m representing, along with six other members, is Japan, and the committee I’m on is the general assembly, which deals with deforestation and environmental disasters.  I can’t wait to start discussing ideas, points of view, and resolutions regarding these topics.  I had a great time meeting new people, engaging in conversation, and being exposed to new things; I look forward to what tomorrow brings!
