I did it! Just finished my very first talk at this years Global Youth Summit for UNICEF. I spoke about SDG 4 – Quality Education.. I highlighted one target in particular, “By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early childhood development, care and preprimary education so that they are ready for primary education.” 💙 Hope I was able to get the message out of how important early childhood development is. Thanks to all the students for their contagious energy! (Check out my ig live video) It helped control my nerves! Much love to all of you!!!! Remember YOU can be the change to make this world a better place for children. 💙 @unicefphils Thank you again SM Cares and the Global Peace Foundation for inviting me. #GlobalYouthSummit2017 #GlobalYouth4SDGs
