UN Youth Reps

UN Youth Reps attend UN Youth Assemblies in New York, and blog about their experiences.

One FAWCO UN Youth Rep is Vali Mitsakis. Vali is from Greece; her mother is a member of AWO Greece. She was active with the Model UN in high school, and she is a college student in New York, where she's very busy going to UN meetings and learning about the UN's post-2015 sustainable development agenda.

FAWCO's first UN Youth Rep was Gavin Higbie (pictured below at UN Headquarters in New York, third from left). Gavin is the son of Erica Higbie (FAUSA, AWC Perth) who is an active FAWCO volunteer; she serves as our UN Rep in New York.

Gavin attended UN meetings live in New York and via Webcast throughout 2014. He attended the UN Youth Assembly on February 5 and 6, 2014 and posted blogs about his experiences.
