Being a SGAP Leader

The SGAP Leaders Global Experience and United Nations Tour was a phenomenal opportunity. It exposed me to the intricacies of the United Nations (UN) and the functions of each organ within the headquarters. I also had the pleasure of learning the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the UN and how they are planned to be accomplished.
