For me, the opportunity to attend CSW61 has been utterly incredible. I have been able to gain a greater understanding of the issues facing women and girls from all over the world and I have learnt about how I, as a young woman, can help work towards gender equality. CSW has also given me the opportunity to develop my confidence and communication skills by talking to people from different cultures and backgrounds and I have learnt how to network and ask questions, all of which are invaluable skills. All in all, the trip was an amazing experience which I will remember for the rest of my life. I would like to thank everyone that played a part in allowing me to attend CSW61, namely the National Alliance of Women’s Organisations for providing me with such a brilliant experience and to the Northern Ireland Women’s European Platform for accrediting me.
