Allanah Colley: Engaging with the UN from afar

Earlier this year, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women conference in New York thanks to AYLI. 

Since then, my eyes have been opened to how we can still engage with the United Nations and international community from afar.  Just this week, I prepared an oral statement which (despite technical difficulties) was read to the United Nations Committee on the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) at its 70th session in Geneva.
