Migiro calls on young to become ‘committed world citizens’
Addressing the graduation ceremony of the UN International School in New York, Ms. Migiro said she hoped the students have drawn from their experiences in such a diverse classroom – this year’s group of 112 graduates represents 43 nationalities – to “view afresh the most intractable social and political issues” in the world.
“Whatever profession or activity you pursue, I hope you will always be united by the bond of global citizenship that this school has created among you. And I hope you will always identify with the United Nations and its mission,” the former university professor said.
Ms. Migiro said she hoped the graduates would “dare to dream big” in their future careers.
“This is your century, and this is your United Nations. As educated and empowered young men and women with promising careers, your support is particularly crucial in the years ahead.”
