The Hill Days organized by the U.S. Youth Advisory Committee for the UN Ocean Decade (U.S. YAC for UNOD) for World Ocean Day was my first time having the opportunity to travel to the U.S. Capitol to speak face-to-face with lawmakers and advocate for the issues I care about.
It was a life-changing experience for me! I connected immediately with the young activists who came together for the event and made many lasting connections both in and out of the U.S. YAC for UNOD.
After this experience I am confident our generation can truly make a difference.
