My name is Busiswe and I am an 18 year old girl who is studying Drama and Anthropology at Rhodes University. I am orginally from a small township in Cape Town but I am currently living in the Eastern Cape due to Uni. I applied to be part of the Global Goal Model United Nations 2020 summit in Tailand and I was granted a seat! This platform would give me the boost I need as I have s dream to one day be part of the UN and represent my country of South Africa. It will also grant me an opportunity to learn from other young people around the world as I want to tackle social issues such as school drop rates, the lack of cultural events to keep going people off the streets and the bridging the gap between illiteracy in young African people and them finding a job.
The funding will go towards travel and accommodation.
