UN Briefing Mentoring and motivating future leaders at the UN

One of my greatest joys in this position as the Dominican NGO representative at the United Nations is the opportunity to mentor some wonderful young people. Fungai Mboko, a student at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, arrived amidst the cold and snow of January. A native of Zimbabwe, he brought a wonderful mix of high energy, warmth, critical thinking, and great humor to the office. Fungai and the other young people who have graced this office have been a source of great inspiration and hope for me.
