An invitation to the inauguration

Year 13 student and school prefect, Georgina, has an important date in her diary for the early part of next year; she will be attending the inauguration of the next president of the USA. Georgina so impressed the Envision Company, who ran a 10 day Global Young Leaders Conference in Washington DC and New York over the summer which she attended, that they selected her to receive an invitation to attend the event.

Along with young people of over 60 different nationalities, Georgina spent time at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York, and at the State Department in Washington DC, preparing for the culmination of the programme at the Global Summit. They also visit the Saudi Arabian Embassy and attended speeches given by the Cross-Cultural Commissioners for Public Health in Africa.

Speaking of her experiences, Georgina said, “The whole trip was a real inspiration. I am looking forward to going back to the USA in January, but meanwhile I have submitted my UCAS application to Manchester University where I hope to study Politics and International Relations.”
