My UNICEF Global Citizen Leadership Program Experience

As a high school junior, I am involved with outreach activities and leadership programs that help the community, but when I heard about the pilot UNICEF Global Citizen Leadership Program, it sounded different.  I always thought of UNICEF as a great organization that helps kids in need around the world. Early this summer in a SAT prep program, Ms. Salisberry, my college advisor, suggested I apply to the Global Citizen Leadership Program—and I was happy to find out I was accepted.
