World Economic Forum - Annual Meeting of the New Champions and YGL Summit, July 2019, Dalian, China

In July, I took a trip to China to attend the Annual Meeting of the New Champions through the World Economic Forum, or the “Summer Davos” as it is often referred to in Dalian. I was attending the Young Global Leaders Summit beforehand and whilst I could not stay for the full programme, yet again I was inspired and learnt so much in the two days I spent with such an incredible group of people. Each time we meet, which is only once or twice a year, I connect with a wonderful group of leaders from all over the world who are pushing the boundaries in their own countries on a daily basis to create change in their communities, sectors, countries, societies, through business, politics and advocacy. This group of talented people and the staff at the Forum are a constant source of inspiration for me to keep aiming high and doing what I can to support and help others, as well as developing myself into a future leader. I am so proud to be a part of this group, working on multiple global issues in collaboration. Here’s to the next summits and meetings!
