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.
Testimonial by Lucy Owen
While being at CSW, I felt that I learnt so much about issues that I had never even heard about, this has really opened my eyes to the struggles of women globally and not just in the UK. Not only that but I feel as if I’ve gained so much confidence in public speaking from my experience, I now feel that I can confidently address an audience about a variety issues with eloquence. The whole experience has really broaden my horizons and made me realise that I can make a difference in society.
