It was such a honor to moderate the closing session of this year’s United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Dialogue which was held virtually between Geneva and Washington, DC.
UNHCR is the UN agency mandated to aid and protect refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people, and to assist in their voluntary repatriation, local integration or resettlement to a third country.
Chaired by the High Commissioner, the closing session of this year’s Dialogue discussed how the international community can better ensure protection and solutions in future pandemics.
I was a big advocate of Model United Nations (MUN) as a high school student, and even travelled to Nairobi, Kenya to take part in MUN.
It was an unforgettable experience and moderating this UNHCR event was a real honor.
