“The experiences I have had, and the people I have met during my four years with IWHC reassure me that I will never be alone, and that I will always have a voice. Now my voice is strengthened by the voices of my colleagues throughout the world, from Brazil to Nigeria to India and Indonesia. An empowered young person can change the world.“
