The world is better when youths are given the opportunity to express their opinions on urgent issues affecting the world today and to learn about the activities of the United Nations at a highly and most  reputable institution like the United Nations. Youths can make the world a better place to live when their concerns are properly addressed by world leaders. I am proud to be associated with the IYC and i promise, i will greatly contribute to the success of the IYC at all time. I promise t attend this year's Youth Assembly when i receive my confirmation from you.
