Outlining his experience at the virtual Training, York stated he is now out of words, and those who know him will know why. Over the last five months, he has been in virtual Training with the Diplomatic Change the World Model United Nations and now Lives in New York.

“My experience during this time has been one of a lifetime, and time will not permit me to share everything. However, let first and foremost say thank you to the almighty God and my family, friend and supporters; I’ve only gotten to this point because of your help”, he added. 

He furthers his cravings and states that he now has the information, knowledge, and skill-set that not everyone has, but one that everyone who hears my voice from this time forward will know about.

While sharing his experience for the week, York emphasized, “This week, I’ve done something that I’ve wanted to do for years, and that was to be a voice for the voiceless…and I say thank you to my Co-delegate, my team (team responsibility) and to the members of my committee (UNESCO committee) for allowing me to speak on their behalf”. 

This week, he has stood up in front of 3000+ people from all across the world, shared the same stage with the 42nd President of the United States. President Bill Clinton received an Honorable mention for his contribution throughout our deliberations on the topic of addressing Gender Disparities and Promoting Gender Equality in Education, York said. 

“This week, more importantly, I was able to network with like-minded people from 190 Countries, represent the twin Island Federation of St Christopher and Nevis, and the Caribbean Region”, underscored York. 

He also affirmed, “As I end this post, and I think about what has happened in the last five months, I can’t help but encourage someone…don’t give up on your dreams, don’t stop working hard over it, and don’t allow anyone to talk you out of it. You got this”. 

Further, CEO York also shares some words in his closing speech below:

 While closing his speech, he said that It was such fruitful sessions, and with all the working papers presented, it is clear that they all are here to support the topic of gender equality in education, and this is good.

Further, he highlighted various aspects of the Training and stated that, however, it is necessary to emphasize the importance of equity and policies to ensure that while we are trying to address one issue, we do not create another.

“Delegates, let us not focus on making men and women equal. Rather, let our greater focus be; to improve and promote women and men’s values to ensure that both women and men foster better working relationships in education and the workplace,” statement of York reads.
